The Hushed Palette

When there is hypersensitivity, online trolling and abusing for every comment posted, every article shared, and every point of view discussed, people are now choosing to stay quiet. They would rather not share any information at all, any opinion, any point of view, as it seems just safer and less painful to appear neutral. In some cases, this sort of a hostile environment and reactions are making people end up being quiet - hushed. They are being hushed up.

This cultural trend has been translated aptly into a colour palette with hushed and soft tones.

This palette is associated with the following values: softness, restraint, being controlled, peace loving, seeking calm.
