The best advice I can give is to put yourself into it. Use your life & your interests for inspiration. Use color combinations & style that you personally like. There are tons of different kinds of beads. Look at a craft store (a store dedicated to beading would be even better if you have one near you) or catalogs for bead companies & see which ones speak to you. There are literally thousands of colors & styles of beads to choose from.
