Rain forest green marble & travertine tile--need paint advice

Posted by amygee (My Page) on

We inherited 3 bathrooms all done in EXACTLY the same colors, forest green marble floors and shower stalls, and travertine tile vanity countertops and 1/2 way up the walls. The base of all vanities is cherry wood. Lots of colors and overall I don't love any of it. For now, I am trying to paint the rooms differently to make them less similar and hoping to remodel them entirely as soon as I can convince my husband that it does not look nice.
We already painted one bathroom in BM Audubon Russet---I thought it would pick up some of the reddish flecks in the marble and while it does, it is like throwing yet another color into the already busy mix. I chose BM vanilla ice cream for another and am stumped on the 3rd which gets very little light and is the smallest of the three. Any advice to a brand new home owner? will try to find pic

I hope you got some advice before now. In the third, dark bathroom, I would have painted the cabinet, too.
