I enjoy the discussions of science and more at Quora. Maybe someday I will be smart enough to field an answer. Meanwhile here is an academic discussion of The Science of Picking Color For Retail for retail and other designers by Ren Walker, Designer at AdPearance … “Is there a science to picking colors or is it just subjective.” … where “trial and error” is part of the “science.” For practical tools and “trial and error” aids in your quest for retail color, see the FixturesCloseUp.com links below.

For FixturesCloseUp Research Tips try:
Use the Index Page Menu. It provides a partial visual list of post images in addition to Titled Posts. But its visual list often includes “flights” or groupings of the color use from various angles or zooms. Scan the Titles or use the browser <Find> command to local a key word within the titles. For example <FIND: Clinique> on the Orange Index Page to find Orange Clinique fixtures among the titles.
Use the Pinterest Board Menu . It provides a totally visual approach, but typically only one image from what may be multi-image posts. You can cover more research ground this way, but with lesser specificity. Click any Photo Pin on any Pinterest Board to be linked to the original post, commentary and often additional photos. That way you can dig deeper into any color scheme of interest.
