We welcome a new Design Principal to the Studio! by Renegade Moss

I write with a combination of happiness and sadness with the news that I have sold my business - Island Point Interiors to Natalia Greig, who took ovder the reins at the end of September.   I will remain as a consultant and my dedicated and friendly staff - Sally Sherlock, Melinda Andreassen and Hazuki Kirby will continue in the business along with Jayne Miller who will take care of the social media, advertising and web site.


Natalia brings to Island Point Interiors years of experience in the industry here and in Asia, highly qualified with 2D, 3D and graphic software and worked along side one of Queensland's leading Architects for the last three years. A local Port Douglas resident, Natalia has exciting plans ahead to take the business to the next level of interior design in Port Douglas.  With a passion for both hospitality and residential interiors, Natalia's own personal style is a perfect fit for Island Point Interiors.  With her enthusiasm and energy, I feel confident in leaving my business at a stage where it is ripe to reach its full potential.


Along with Natalia -  Sally, Melinda and Hazuki will still be there to provide you with the personal service and quality interior products and advice you have come to expect over the years.


It has been a 7 year journey for me, one filled with many amazing experiences meeting you all and sharing the fun and satisfaction of seeing through to reality the vision of creating interiors in your home or holiday property.  I will try to thank you all personally, but in this email, I would like to thank you all for not just your business but including me in the joy and satisfaction of transforming your interiors.


Warm regards,

Janet Mackay

A freshly fragranced breeze blows through the Studio.... by Renegade Moss


The Island Point Interiors studio is simply buzzing at the moment, with a refreshing breeze beautifully fragranced by…our new retail range!

Yes,  you did read that right! Island Point Interiors will be stocking a select range of retail products in our Reef Marina studio. We welcome you to drop by to say hello, and to pick up the perfect gift or accessory for your home.

We’ve established our own little  OCD (Obsessive Candle Discerners) cult at the studio.  And Voluspa’s coconut oil candles and True Grace’s hand-poured uniquely evocative scented range are our number one candles for lighting up our world (sorry…😉 )

We warmly invite you to the Studio to take a peek at our range of candles, diffusers, room sprays, décor and accessories…with lots of other lovely stock arriving before Easter.

A word about Voluspa:

Voluspa candles are based on a fresh coconut oil wax blend.  They are exquisitely luxurious yet affordable, a range of rare and exotic fragrances packaged to exquisite perfection.

Most Desired:

  • A warm, sensual aroma is created by the Baltic Amber fragrance- with essential oils of amber resin, sandalwood and a touch of neroli.  Available in  100 hr candle, 25 hr tin and room diffuser.
  • Welcome your dreamy tropical island inside with Voluspa's Panjore Lychee.  Coconut wax is infused with Panjore lychee, cassis and juicy Asian pear. 

A word about True Grace:

True Grace is a range of hand poured candles inspired by walks in the English countryside, wonderful childhood memories and travels to exotic destinations, True Grace candles are hand poured in Wiltshire, England using the finest pure ingredients and 100% pure natural wax derived from rapeseed and beeswax. Gorgeous scents like breezy seashore, orchard, blackcurrant leaves and garden rose are infused into each clean-burning candle.
