I just came across this site all about color, some of it the usual info on hue, etc., but a lot of it from the sales angle. Lots of wheels and charts. Interesting both for creating and selling. Now do I make another red hat because I sold my last one or a purple one because someone always wants to be different?

Whoops! Now I don't remember and can't find it, but here is some basic color info. And if you Google color wheel, you will get LOTS of stuff.

It is important to me. For instance, I think more customers could be attracted to a seller's shop in winter if the items on the 1st page are in warm colors. They could unconsciously associate it with a roaring fireplace, warm throw, snuggling, etc. That's what they would seek in the dead of winter. Same in summer. Fill the shop front page with cool colors products and customers will be attracted to the impression of cool water, crisp air and a perceived overall refreshing atmosphere. It's like a reprieve from the hot summer sun, or an oasis.

It's a challenge to do it this way when we are used to gravitating to autumn colors for fall and cool colors for winter, etc.

I like the first link, Lesley. Thanks for sharing! If you find that other site, please share the link.

Do you have a signature color(s)? It is the color that you've always loved, even from childhood. It is the color that makes you happy and makes you feel alive. It's the color that you gravitate to when making purchases.

I have a pair of signature colors: chartreuse green and fuchsia. It also includes all yellow-greens from olive to lime green and all red-violets from plum to hot pink. Here are some examples. I wish there was some way to reduce these image sizes. My crafting and personal life are centered around these color schemes, along with the neutrals white and silvers. I am a winter person who is most happy with bright, clear, cool colors.
