We can do a lot more but if this is a direction we'd like to explore, I felt it's better to start with small iterations.

I miss the icons a bit, but wonder if perhaps a change to the new @wordpress/icons set might help bring in some lightness without totally ditching them, as the new icons are more open and airy?

Love the extra padding though (and I'm itching to get those higher luminance colors!)
