Bathroom paint color

Can't figure out what color will work with our tile. Trying to avoid beige. The tile is a peachy brown color. It's a warm yellowish brown but with a lot of pink undertone. Normally I would go with green but we have that elsewhere in the house and I don't like green for a bathroom. What color scheme will work with this tile? I like the idea of a very light blue/gray color but not sure if a green, gray, or purple tone is best. Other ideas? I can't do dark colors as this is an interior room with no windows. The photo is taken with flash... the color looks warmer in person. Thanks!!!

Dark colors can look gorgeous in windowless bathrooms.

I'm going to suggest one of my favorite colors, Benjamin Moore Vintage Charm

RE: Bathroom paint color

I have a tile that is very similar in color and a couple of colors that I found that look good with it are Cedar Key and Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. Still haven't painted my mudroom yet hat has this tile. Currently I have a peachy beige wall color that I can't wait to paint over!

My DD recently had the LR/DR painted a grayed eggplant, and it's so pretty with the white trim/ crown molding. Now I *know* you have both in your home, so am thinking it could be a good choice, good with the tile, also.

Thanks everyone for all of the ideas! I am going to pick up samples today, and I am considering going with those darker colors after all. :-) I'm also considering a muted dark indigo. I found a shower curtain I absolutely love that has the warm brown, beige, and indigo colors.
