The biggest challenge when selecting the local references on each Colour Palette is narrowing it down to just six.

Each area has so many great places and fond memories it makes it tough choosing the final selection.

And this is where we call on local expertise in each of the towns, cities and counties featuring a Colour Palette (always more to come, by the way).

For The Sheffield Colour Palette we asked family members who are proud to call the Steel City home to help steer our selections.

A must-feature for the Sheffield Colour Palette is the recently-closed Cole Brothers department store, a popular feature of Sheffield family life for generations.

We sourced the green swatch direct from this lovely old paper bag, found in the back of a Yorkshire drawer.

It’s a lovely shade of green and makes for the perfect addition to the Sheffield Colour Palette!
