Typically in the $15-25/SF rang in most areas with commonly available real stone - concrete pavers would typically be more in the $10-20/SF range. If by multiple colored design you mean the individual blocks being multi-color, not just placing individual blocks of various colors in the patio, then you are talking stained concrete which can run you back up to about the cost of real stone, but does give you a lot of leeway on patterns and colors.


One thing you can do to reduce the cost of this, if you accept its appearance, is to have the patio laid out in full blocks, with the "circle" being made of factory cut edger stones placed on TOP of the edge of the patio as a border - that eliminates the need to do circular cuts on every paver edge stone, which gets pricey. Or accept a "circle" that is jagged edged - made of blocks with natural edges so the edge would look "pixelated" with the natural corners sticking out. Another alternative is to use small blocks laid in a circle so the flat edges do not eliminate the "round" appearance - or use larger stones laid in a circular pattern but with straight edges on each stone so all cuts are straight, making the outer perimeter a series of flats on the round.If the edger blocks are small (not very "deep" front to back), the outer edge of the paver blocks that stick out from under them on the outside can be covered with sod or planter material or such to hide the jagged edge. There are a lot of ways to do a "round" patio without actually having to cut and grind the outer stones/blocks to a true curve, which is quite expensive - with true stone pavers can run you into the $10-20/SF higher cost.
