The nice thing about Harvest Gold is that it goes with just about any other colour-all you need to do is decide the direction you want to take your bathroom decorating in. By any chance does the basin and commode match the tub?
You could go retro (60s-70s), or elegant-dramatic (timeless, or with the right accessories something that feels 1920s), or even farmhouse (see below)
For example, you can go with black and grey for a dramatic, elegant statement, high gloss black halfway or even two thirds of the way up the wall and then a lovely lighter shade of flat grey the rest of the way up the way; accessorise with dark grey hand towels, brushed nickel hardware, etc.
For a retro look to match the tub, you can paint in late 60s-early 70s colours like avocado (although I'd go with something a little lighter than full-on avocado) and use some of the new fabrics available that look like fabrics from that era-buy a half yard and cut sew-on strips to make a border on hand towels, for example, or make a valance.
To get a farmhouse look, you could go with a cream a few shades lighter than the gold tub halfway up and then white up the rest of the wall, and use cream coloured accents in hand towels, soaps, dispensers. You could look in flea markets and yard sales for some of those vintage tin wall plaques of 1900s era washrooms.
Good luck with your painting, whatever you decide, please update this with pics to give us all some fresh ideas:)
