Joanna Saltz: I want to begin with the question I get most often: When you’re designing a space, where do you start? Michelle Cortizo: Many things inspire me: nature, textiles, fashion, movies.

Choose a spot. Permeable pavers can guard against flood damage by allowing rainwater to infiltrate the ground, says landscape designer Douglas Clark. Think about putting them wherever water tends to collect. 2. Dig for drainage. To install, you need to add a base layer of compacted gravel underneath (see left). “You can’t just put them on top of…

A craft fair. Field + Supply, the brainchild of Arkansas-born, Manhattanbased designer Brad Ford, has achieved cultlike status among elite decorators and local residents alike.
