Data Color Reference for Power BI Themes
Reading Time: 3 minutes

UPDATED 12/31/2019:

As of December 2019, Power BI includes a new ribbon and many more themes. I’ve updated the color reference in this post: Data Color Reference for Power BI Themes (as of December 2019)

LEGACY:

Power BI now includes eight built-in themes in addition to the countless JSON variations that you could import. If you are interested in the hex color values in order to use them in Power BI or elsewhere, here is a basic quick reference to the built-in themes. I’ve only included the initial eight colors in each theme. As I discussed in my original Color Reference post on the default theme, themes start to vary after a certain amount of colors but in a different shade or tint. Many of the built-in themes start to repeat after eight base colors while some repeat after ten. I may revisit this guide later to be more precise with themes that include more than eight colors, but for now, here are the primary eight data colors for each.
