The island where I live has an incredible aura about it. Deer Isle, Maine attracts many fine artists and highly skilled craftspeople as well as vacationers who come from all over the world to admire the beauty of the natural environment. Julie Morringello is the creative genius behind a new lighting resource called modernmaine. Julie’s “Uni Collection” was inspired by the exterior shell of a sea urchin like the ones that frequently wash up on the shores of Deer Isle. Uni is the Japanese word for sea urchin. The lamp diffusers of the Uni are made from Tyvek or paper of your choice and can be switched out at whim. Displayed here are two versions. Best of all, these organic designs are very good feng shui. Why? Creative, beautiful, good yin yang balance, just good energy all around.

Has anyone else been feeling astrologically battered lately? The news from the mideast is grim, the people of Japan are suffering from the tsunami, the economy is shaky…makes me wanna crawl back into my cave for a couple of years. But it’s gonna be dark in that cave so I decided to look for some lighting. These–all from WeGotLites–are definitely designed with the planets in mind. I wonder if there’s good feng shui on Saturn? Having circular and global shapes definitely adds yin energy to your space to balance out the square angles.
