sammydozens: Complimentary colours, I cant seem to get them to look amazing, i know the sites like adobe kuler etc any other tips or resources would be great!
thadcoxdesign Have you tried the Wings Art Colour Wheel? http://bit.ly/20rbn5G. I also love Farrow & Ball. They have lovely colours and if you pick one and scroll down, at the bottom of the page they have suggestions for colour pairings. http://www.farrow-ball.com/colours/paint/fcp-category/list
Also try: http://designspiration.net/ and click on 'colour' on the top. You can search by colour and when you do it shows off other designs using that colour. You may find that the way someone else has paired colours resonates with you.
