4 Kona Palettes Featuring Classic Blue

One of my favorite features in my newsletters is my Kona color palettes. Today I'm sharing my latest here with you.

Through some technical research I selected Surf as the Kona color closest to PANTONE's Classic Blue, their color of the year for 2020. I used PANTONE's provided hex code for Classic Blue and compared to my Adobe library of Kona swatches.

Each of these Kona palettes uses Surf in the top position. Colors are listed in clockwise order, starting from the top.

(1) Surf, Lake, Cyan, Storm, Copen, Oyster.


(2) Surf, Breeze, White, Acid Lime, Limelight, Geranium.


(3) Surf, Peacock, Cerise, Black, Deep Blue, Valentine.


(4) Surf, Glacier, Cactus, White, Limelight, Teal Blue.

I find inspiration from a variety of locations. Check out today's newsletter to see where my inspiration for the third palette came from.


I've only scratched the surface of what you could partner with Classic Blue. More palettes are certainly forthcoming.

      I'm excited too... best color in years. :-) (Though Ultra Violet was good too!) Thanks for visiting, Cheryl.
