Was concerned that if the patio and sidewalk didn't turn out the exact same color it would look bad.

Most manufacturers have a "charcoal" type color that is a good start during the color selection process.

Thanks guys appreciate the help. Found a tan/charcoal color that looks great with the siding and sidewalk.

If you can't exactly match the color of the existing sidewalk, its going to look funny so I would recommend, like others have said, to choose a contrasting color. Depending on the existing landscaping and color schemes of the yard, a very light color can be perfect.
