Welcome to the forums

Have you tried going to a paint store and discussing color options with them? There is usually at least one employee that is well versed in color selection.

Some builders have model homes that you can tour which may help you. If you see a color combination you like, ask for the name of the color and brand of paint.

Remember also your lighting will make a difference. Like, what color light bulbs you have.

your best bet for finding good bedroom pictures will be to search for bedroom furniture or bedcoverings. any website that sells those items will display them in completely decorated room settings.

catalogs are great too

I like to look through catalogs to get ideas....whatever comes in the mail or I pick up, like Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, VanDykes, and Rejuvenation are a few of my faves. Also, if you have tile or a carpet or the like that you want to match, most paint and hardware stores can match that for you, just bring in a sample.
