What combination of colors should I use to decorate my home?

I plan on decorating my apt. soon with dark oak mission furniture, along with accent pieces like lamps, shelves, and picture frames in espresso.... but I don't just wanna limit myself to those colors. I'd like to add a little touch of ivory or bone white to my decor but don't know how to work with them. Do these colors go well with dark oak and espresso? And are there any other colors that I should consider using? I'm trying to give my place a warm cozy look, but I need some ideas.

The ivory/dark oak/espresso color combo will look fantastic. Check out these home makeovers from HGTV:

You could also use hunter green, dusty blue, adobe red, dusty rose, or butternut squash - all are very typical of Arts & Crafts style.
