Shower Tile Doesn't Match- Ideas?


Hi everyone, first time poster here. I'm a single bachelor without any sense of style when it comes to home decor. I recently had a fiasco with a guy who was suppose to install a new shower for me, long story short we had a disagreement and he didn't show for 7 days, I was able to get someone out on short notice to install the shower, but suddenly couldn't find matching tile at any of my local home improvement stores so I bought the closest match I could find, which I attached to this email.

Looking back I should have maybe done a contrasting color, but with the contractor coming out that day I just went with the closest I could find and it doesn't look so great. An ideas how I could doctor this up and make it work?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Looks like a patch---yep, contrasting would have looked better.

Here's an attached picture with the shower installed. Is there some type of molding or anything I could outline around the tile that doesn't match to help it transition better? Unfortunately I'm color blind so it's extra hard for me. I figured I could do something like this at an affordable rate.

Or is my best route looking for matching tile and trying to cut it to fit around the shower
