After the announcement of Living Coral as the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year earlier this month, the watch was on for the Kona Color of the Year from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. And yesterday, we were rewarded for our wait with the announcement of Splash, "a bright and boisterous blue-green hue."

So whatcha think? I confess I kinda love it! And like I did with Kona COTYs Highlight, Pink Flamingo, and Tiger Lily, I fully expect to dabble with it and see where it takes me. 


  1. Love love love! and I think it will be awesome COMBINED with living coral! both hit the nail on the head this year

  2. This is my favorite color of the year yet!

  3. I really like Splash; both the name and the color. The onomatopoeia of the word is super fun. :)

  4. It's the best color! What the heck...Pantone and now Kona each having amazing COTY's...It'll be a blast to use either in 2019!

  5. I'd call that a version of turquoise. And as I always say,' That's one of my favorite colors.'
    But really it is and I find a way to use it in my projects whenever I can.
