Some colors just work well together, that’s the way its always been and that’s the way its always going to be period. Sometimes you cant tell just how good or bad two colors will work together until you see it for yourself. Using color charts helps to visually see the different combinations possible with complementary colors and other color groups, this helps to take the ambiguity out of the equation. Keep in mind there are many different shades to each color.
Even if one of the colors you expected to look good ended up looking bad, you can try different shades until you find something you like.
