Can you tell me the brick name/color used for this walkway? - Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This is a traditional, axial plan, where the fountain is the folly and focal point.

I personally would love a work space tucked back in this "mediterranean retreat." A hearty rustic table and simple vintage metal cafe chairs would fit my own fancy. Room enough on the table of course for that portable tea service.
There's something Old World about herringbone; it's an easy way to imbue a bit of stateliness to a project.
