🚨NOTE: Since this theme is based on Chakra, we require that the theme colors should be color values from 50 - 900. For example, here's what the default colors look like:

// value of theme.colors
  "primary": {
    "50": "#e9f5f2",
    "100": "#d4dcd9",
    "200": "#bbc3be",
    "300": "#a1aba5",
    "400": "#87938b",
    "500": "#6d7972",
    "600": "#555f58",
    "700": "#323c34",
    "800": "#232924",
    "900": "#272727"
  "accent": {
    "50": "#ede4d3",
    "100": "#fbe3b2",
    "200": "#f6d086",
    "300": "#f1be58",
    "400": "#eca419",

    "700": "#775105",
    "800": "#483100",
