If you are not planning on this being a business then I wouldn't suggest buying the larger quanities or ribbon just yet. Just buy what you will use.
As far as the colors, I mainly make bows to match my daughters clothing. I love mixing patterns and colors together. Once you get to making more and more bows you will get the hang of it. It will come natural!
I don't suggest copying someones design but it doesn't hurt to get color inspiration.
