Need help picking color for bathroom


I am finishing my basement and I tiled my shower with brown tiles of different shades. I need a color to paint the walls in there. I really don't want to do brown, because of the tiles and the rest of the basement is done in a Khaki color. Any ideas? Pic is attached of the bathroom, sorry for the poor quality, they were taken with my phone.

Pale green or blue always goes well with brown shades (at least to me).

Gorgeous I hope one of my future remodeled bathrooms looks half as good as that.
But back on topic, I think that a garnet would look stellar as well as the blues hue.

I think I would pick out one of the "khaki" or "suede" hues from the tile and run with that. Then I would splash some dramatic color with towels and so forth.

With your choices, I think a pearl glaze would go great, and bring out the lighter shades in your tile. Lowe's has a wonderful treatment I think called brushed pearl in many colors.
