Swedish pavers from Oldsjö Hultgren Design

Concrete pavers bore me to death — generally — but these, by Swedish  Oldsjo Hutgren Design, are a whole different story.

This little plaza motif is beautiful and exciting and I love that there is no effort to try and make concrete look like old stone or something that you might find in a Venetian Plaza.  Am I the only one who is sick of ‘Tuscan’ or other Disneyland styled pavers? – bleh – leave Tuscany, the Cotswolds, Santorini, Dublin or wherever else alone and revel in your own regional style, I say.   I really find it annoying when people, things, and design try to be something that they clearly are not.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Those are really cool! I have seen some creative designs where you can use different size pavers to create a grape motif and some fun swirls. I’ve been dying to do one for a client but have yet to find the right client.

    I could not agree more about pavers. Well said!
