Is there any websites where I can see different color combinations?
 
I want to paint my house, but I'm having trouble picking a color. Is there any websites that have a lot of pictures of houses or where I can kind of change paint colors on a similar looking house as mine?

www.benjaminmoore.com has probably one of the best
I believe it's called the Personal Color Viewer

www.prattandlambert.com also has one, but yes BM does seem to have a superior viewer.

One word of warning: Computer monitors are notoriously color-inaccurate. Once you get an idea for a color, be sure to pick up a chip (or better yet, a quart sample) before buying gallons of expensive paint.

Yep a monitor is WAY off compared to what you would actually get. You can at best hope to get some idea of how such colors look together, not a good idea of the colors themselves.
