What Paint Color Works With a Pink Bathroom Floor?

Q: I am the lucky owner of a 1950s condo with beautifully functional original bathrooms that are very pink! We discovered the pink pinwheel floor tiles when I ripped up the peel-and-stick tiles the previous owners had laid on top to help sell the place. We got the pepto-bismol pink wall tiles professionally reglazed and they are now a bright shiny white. I am going to paint the sink cabinet a high-gloss black, and I plan to clean and repair the grout in the floors. My question is what paint color should I choose so that the pink floors don't overwhelm the rest of the bathroom [see photo]? I absolutely love those darn pink tile floors, but they are extremely difficult to decorate around! I don't really want a "pink bathroom"...

When we have saved some more money, I will buy a new vanity to help the whole thing not look quite so cheap, and I will probably take down the wall-to-wall mirror in one of the bathrooms. Given this plan, what should I paint the top part of the wall?

I tried beige, medium gray, dark blue, and dark teal. I love the dark colors, but I'm just not sure—it might be too intense? Thanks for the additional opinions! -Sent by Maggie

Editor: Way to love the tiles you're with, Maggie! And your freshly reglazed wall tiles look great. Readers, what paint color do you recommend? Any other design advice? Thanks!
