So, I figured the number of pavers per square feet. I also figured the percentages of each color over the entire run and translated that into the number of pavers needed for each 30 square feet.

Eventually I came up with 38.5 #32, and 29 #33 per 30 square feet.

The reason I needed to be specific about it was not only to keep the ratio correct through the run, but to also make sure I wasn't stuck with one solid color in the last 10 feet or so.
