Avente Tile
Is your location subject to freeze/thaw cycles. If not, then I'd recommend using cement tiles. Cement tiles can be customized and there are more options than with glazed terra cotta.

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Mediterranean Garden Style
Here's a softer take on the same idea. Rather than a single expanse of pavers, tiles that mimic a Moroccan rug add definition.

6. Tilework and ironwork. When religious mandates forbade the representation of living forms as decoration for dwellings or gardens, early garden makers in the Middle East used colorful tiles to emulate flower colors and wrought iron filagree to suggest trees and shrubs. This tradition came to Spain from the Moors and continues in Spanish-influenced gardens today.

Like the pattern for inspiration of a patio up here. Doesn't have to be pink tones, just like the variant of pattern.
