Bathroom Paint Color Suggestion

My wife isn't real keep on the color of your bathroom (kind of a darker ivory). The tub toilette and sink are all cream colored and the floor is a cream colored marble. Everything is really in tones of brown. Is there a color we can add that will lighten the bathroom up while not clashing with the existing pieces? I've attached a picture so maybe that will help. Thanks.

It can be difficult to pick a color for someone else - everyone's tastes are different. Personally, I think the current color looks good....... but if the wife ain't happy

The easy pic would be to just use a lighter shade of what you have but there are many colors that will work. I'd suggest looking at color brochures and try to get an idea of what she'll like. If you have a doubt about a color you can buy a sample pint at many paint stores. Some paint stores have software that will take your pic and insert their colors.

IMO you already have a room with light paint!! The room looks big enough that you can paint one wall a different color (personally i like when the furthest straight ahead wall is a different color than the side walls and the wall with the entryway).

What is you went less "ivory" and more earthy tan color - would be a little darker but might git it a "richer" feel

I had thought about a light green but I think it looks awful in the sample pic above....
