In fact the dark purple won't be that dark (it is slightly lighter) because there isn't a Pantone like that.

Just tried the color combinations you provided. I have to say this definitely looks awesome.
Will this only available in monotone? Any chance the modifier keys have a slightly different purple color?

Do you mean like the renders in the OP? Those have beige accents. Not sure what you’re asking for unless you mean beige mods instead of accents.

Please at 2 r3 1u blanks to the ergodox kit to make it a proper ergoplanck kit. Not necessary, but a nice addition, would be 4 r4c keys, 2 of each color.

thanks for the input. the base + 40s kit will cover a planck but i understand some might prefer blanks. we'll definitely look into it

I ask because the Iris is getting real popular, and that would make base + ergo cover it out of the box. Also, many many ortho users prefer blank mods as they change their layout, making legends useless. It's just 2 blank keys, so it's barely a drop in the bucket price wise, and it's pretty standard for all GMK ergo kits since GMK Carbon. The r4c stuff would just be really nice to have, but it's not a deal breaker.

Yeah, would look great on a gold case.

I'm working on creating a custom dark green case myself, and with this set, I'd have a New Orleans Mardi Gras vibe going that I really dig. Especially with the Fleur de Lis novelty...

Definitely digging the regal look. Would look exceptional in a black/dark grey case.

However one concern:

I checked that pantone 7500 C beige color of the accents on pantone website, it seems to me that the color shown in the website is ‘less yellow’ and closer to sand color, rather than the ‘gold-ish’ beige look that (I believe you are going for) is in your render pictures.
