Allowing for a full 8 visually distinct color catagories while being aesthetically pleasing; this theme ellicits the warm colors of spring.
If you have 8 measures or a common 8 categories you want to encode to specific colors this is an excellent choice.
Red is not included as it is left to be a reserved color used for either very-bad or very-good signifying based on the culture the report is presented it. (Including it would draw undue attention to whichever category came up as red; a shade of pink is used instead). This red value: DC2C2F matches the other colors for both Saturation and Brightness and can be used to keep aesthetic consistancy wthin the report.
The default colors are high saturation and work great for thin stroked (thin) line chart. Wide stroked (thick) bar charts or especially tree maps should use the lighter variation of each color found below the base colors at the top of the color picker. For very small bars, or when special attention needs to be drawn to a specific chart or glyph/bar the darker tones can be used to strong effect.
Colors have a Saturation Value of ~80 and Brightness Value of ~86.
(Getting the number of distinct colors here to be so large lead to this palate is not color blind safe)
