Find a picture that you think has some good colours/tones and using the colour picker tool, start picking some colours out of it.

This is also a good website http://colorschemedesigner.com/ if you want to create colour schemes.

You can also get Adobe Kuler as an extension for PS (assuming you use PS for designing) – http://www.adobe.com/bg/products/kuler.html

Choice of colour scheme 100% depends on your template mood and concept. Colours which might fit vintage style template will never fit well some flat business style, or this one… which is in fashion now… metro?-if I am not mistaken.

Hence Jaynesh’s advice is really useful, first choose the topic and temper of your template, than choose main image which illustrates/dominates your template and than pick up the colours out of this image.

I think you need to take a designer by your side. It will be hard to deliver high quality designs if you lack the taste for colors, to begin with.

Creating attractive color combinations is tough. As a newbie, I personally rely on color schemes that I find on Dribbble.
