Matilda Velvet Sham – Lilac $159.00
Do you ever look at some people’s homes and think “shut.the.front.door, this place is the bees knees?” Ok, maybe you don’t use those exact words, but they were the words we used when we walked into Tash Webb’s 1980’s original brick home in Canterbury, Melbourne last week.

Tash’s Instagram page says it all, @thecolourtribe lives ands breathes colour. She also hosts hashtags #crashbangcolour and #followfridayart and her colour obsession is no more evident than in her home. An explosion of colour at every corner and enough artwork to make Julia Green jealous, we soaked it all up before gettin’ down and dirty (well clean, the house was immaculate!) with our Rumah Collection.
We spoke to Tash about her home, life and what makes her happy (colour and cushions!), here’s what she had to say:
Who lives here?
“My husband Anthony and our two boys Thomas (6) & Harvey (3).”

Why did you choose this place to call home?
“We felt a sense of nostalgia stepping into this home. We’re lucky that this home has remained in a solid condition, which is what attracted us to buy it in the first place (no need to renovate!).
For a home built in 1983 it has a few advanced features that are so attractive to us today, such as hydronic underfloor heating, ducted vacuuming, large pantry, heaps of storage space and master bedroom downstairs.
We always wanted a fireplace and when we saw this home, there was so much to fall in love with but nothing beats sitting in front of an open fire during winter… the sounds, the smell and the warmth is just gorgeous!”

What do you do for money?
“I’m a Marriage Celebrant (@tashywebb or www.natashawebb.com) and it fills me with joy and is so rewarding, I’ve even used the private courtyard to marry couples! Some couples opt out of the big ceremony and come to me to get married and head out to celebrate afterwards. The fact I use my home for meeting my clients and occasionally marry them here is a complete honour.”

Happiest memory here?
“Christmas’ are the BEST! I buy the tallest tree I can find and decorate it like the Griswalds. It’s like a magical wonderland and makes my heart BURST.”
Saddest memory here?
“Losing our Fred… our precious Staffy in July. We brought him home the week after our honeymoon 8 years ago and he was a significant part of our lives… we called him our first born. My heart is still broken and we miss him every day.”

Next on the lust list?
“The right couch for our family room… In an ideal world, every piece of furniture would be dated between the 60’s and 80’s but I’m not sure it’s practical enough for young children and a modern lifestyle. We’ve kept our solid and larger style couches and felt that adding true punches of colour is what gives this place life and joy.”
“Our kitchen is one of the happiest kitchens I’ve ever seen. The yellow can’t help but make me smile and takes the edge off when preparing school lunches. This window opens up to an outdoors brekkie nook which is special.”
