Need Ideas for this dead space!

Well this is the side of the back yard off the patio that looks awful and I'm not sure what to do with it! The other side of the yard has tons of flowers and plants so I would like to go with some hardscape and maybe a firepit? Any suggestions or ideas for a design?

I spray painted my gate in black (can of Listoliem from Homedepot) I don't know if that is the correct spelling, but I helps from rusting out so quickly. This would blend with your bistro set and the firepit...

If the grass in between each flagstone gets to be annoying, you can always add landscaping sand between each stone or that crushed peeble. I love the way it looks now, cozy.

Hey, forgot to say that the flag stone by the window looks great. Perfect,low maintenance, fresh and quaint - love it.

Ok. LEAVE the ivy alone. I cut my naighbor's ivy right to the very top of the fence, it was just out of control - leaving a little draping over my side, it is brighter, opens it up visually. But LEAVE IT if it is supporting the fence, you can always add little items here and there. The flag stone is perfect, you want to keep those matching or close to it, because than it will look like you just threw it together. Can't wait to see it finished. P.S. You make me laugh.
