French term or phrase: piste colorielle
In a report analysing the market research for a new vacuum cleaner:
"De l’analyse de la préférence des couleurs se dégage la nécessité d’accroître la cohérence entre le concept et le design.
La préférence d’une piste colorielle n’est pas à comprendre comme un résultat à favoriser."
I'd be grateful for any suggestions. Thank you.
