Your landscape should be a Vanishing Threshold with your interior. Pattern in the gravel? What to choose? Look at your: dishes, wallpaper, fabrics, art, furniture, etc. Repetition is a huge landscape design tool.
Love this gravel. Elegantly tiny and a receding brownish color. Too often gravel is too large. Large gravel looks commercial. Think parking lot. And gravel too bright, think whitish, overwhelms most landscapes becoming an unintentional focal point.
Oh dear, now you've seen my work shoes. Ugh. But it was important to show the the scale of some gorgeous gravel. Can you hear this gravel as I walk? It's a delight.

Love, love the crunch of pea stone under the feet as I wander!
