Finding the right color combos

PAINTING: In my humble opinion, it's the LAST thing you do when you've (re)decorated a room. I'm finding that not a whole lot of people are aware of this, but even though it may be inconvenient when you're moving to have to take the furniture back out again, it's worth it and here's why:
Paint colors are endless... you can find fabrics and upholstery and furniture first because they are more tailored to your preferences (and a little more limited). Then pick paint color after everything else is picked out because you're pretty much guaranteed to find a shade that will coordinate.
Behr.com or other paint websites have color coordinators that can help you decide on a color scheme in a room, suggesting a main color, accent colors, etc.
Here's some fun combinations from www.bhg.com that designers are suggesting these days:
Ann Fox
Juicy Citrus.. so happy right?
 Katie Lydon
New Pink.. I like the gray tones a lot
 Mimi McMakin
Brights
 Gunkelman
Updated Classic
 Ann Fox
Warm Seaglass
 Constance Ramos
Seaside
 Bevans
Rich Elegance.. probably my favorite
 Kishani Perera
Poppy
 Liz Levin
Fresh Neutrals
