Paint Color suggestions for Powder Room w/Carrara basketweave flo

I have a very small powder room (3'x 7'):
From June 7, 2012

The window was moved about 18" toward the left and is something like BM Super White.
My house was built in 1939, so all of the floors (except the powder room) are hardwood (if it matters) I had a carrara basketweave (with black marble dot)floor installed:

And a 3 drawer vanity made for the sink:

I plan to use a carrara top with a white undermount sink. I'm just not sure what color to paint the walls and vanity. The foyer outside the PR is BM Silver Half Dollar, which most of the time looks more blue than gray:

Any suggestions for paint colors would be most appreciated.

I was going to suggest Samovar silver by sherwin williams but then i read your other outside was silver half dollar by BM. you could maybe do sherwin williams blonde. i think that would compliment the blue grey undertones of the marble. sorry i mainly know sherwin williams colors

A vote for painting the vanity in satin black ... and the walls in Super White.

I did a bathroom with that tile once. Vanity in black would be chic, or just go with white that would work too.

I spec'd Ellen Kennon's Mushroom for the walls. Probably breaks some kinda 'undertone rules' but it looked fabulous.

Here is a link that might be useful: Original Full Spectrum paints

My first thought was blue and then I saw your foyer color. I would definitely carry the Silver Half Dollar into the bathroom. I absolutely adore your floors!
