    Go to the paint store and pic yourself up a few color charts that has complimentary paint samples in it. The nicest looks generally include 3 colors, though a lot can be done with two. I'd also hop on my bike or go for a drive around the neighborhood to see what color schemes the neighbors are doing with a similarly styled home.

    Lou,

    Many of the paint manufacturers sell relatively inexpensive computer programs that allow you to scan in a picture of your home and then digitally apply their colors to the various surfaces. I have used the one by Benjamin Moore to visualize how my house would look.
