Would light green paint be too cold for master bath?

I picked cream color tiles for my master bath. It's small. Would light green paint on the wall appear too cold? The bathroom is bright and has a venting skylight.

Hallway bath would have light yellow marble-like tiles, and I'd use light yellow paint on the wall.

Thank you very much.

I think it depends on the shade of green that you choose.

Green can be either cool...

Or warm...

Some people avoid green in the bathroom because it can be less flattering. If you've got cream colored tile and natural light, I think that a soft green would be lovely.

You might want to post your question in the Home Decorating forum also. There are many color and paint experts there who could make specific recommendations if you post a picture of your selections and a description of the look that you are trying to achieve.

I used BM grasshopper and I love it.

I love green and cream together. What sort of a green are you looking at?

All I remember is my MIL painted her bath green and had to repaint right away as it gave everyone a greenish cast to their skin, looking like they were about to be sick on a rocky boat ... ever since then, I look for warm peachy or creamy colors that add a nice blush to the complexion.

That being said, the soft green in the bathroom is very trendy and has been for awhile to get that "spa" look.
