Any paint color ideas for these walls?

My friend has a bathroom with deep brown cabs, orange concrete floor and avocado tile.

What paint color should she choose for the walls? I'm having a hard time with recommendations. She used a groupon, so I believe it has to be behr or glidden.

Thanks in advance!

What about the color that's in there? It seems to look nice with the tile.

I think she really wants to change it, but I will suggest that.

I think a white would be nice. It's hard for me to think of something else that would go with green tile... and white would look sharp against the dark cabinets.

I like the present color. Perhaps if it was just freshened up with a new coat, she would like it better.

Creamy white
light green

Greenish yellow?


Maybe a beige

SW pennywise is a deep rusty tone that looks good with the tile. There's also a sage green that is several shades darker than the tile that also looks nice. Otherwise I'd try to pick up a taupe shade with a green undertone, or look for specific colors in the flooring.

Court, that is what I had told her. Thanks for the advice.

Patricia, she is determined to paint the bathroom. I think the color does go but in person it is not as nice and close in color and in the photo.

Annie and nosoccermom, Thanks for the photos they help so much! I sent them to her.
