Trying to tie in old concrete patio with something new

We are expanding our stamped concrete patio in our yard. I've heard that it's nearly impossible to get a decent match with the color & stamp expecially since the patio is about 7 years old.
Is there any other kind of patio idea that would would tie in nicely? Being that they are right next to each other and both would be large, I have no idea if pavers or flat stone matches. Or if that would look like wearing a checkered shirt with polka dot pants.

I'd first talk to the person that will do the work. I believe stamped concrete can be refreshed and don't see why they can't recoat the first patio at the same time they put the final coat on the new patio.
I don't think matching the stamp will be an issue.

I think the old stamped pavers can be stained, or maybe if the new installed patio is done in a natural color, both can be stained the same color. I think you have more options than you know........ask. ;o)
