Paint Color Advice for a Blue and White Bathroom

I have a small, interior bathroom that has no windows. The countertop is a medium blue. The trim, medicine cabinet, and doors (it has two doors) are white. What color to you recommend for the walls? I want it to have some color (walls are white now), but also to have a calming, sophisticated affect.

How about tan and add accents in the same blue shade with perhaps a pop of another accenbt color? A yellow , pink, or rust shade.

A lighter shade of the blue in your countertop would look nice on the walls. Blue is a calming color and using different strengths of the same color is a tried and true practice. Accessories (towels, tissue, mats, seat covers, shower curtains, containers, cups, wastebaskets, hampers, etc.) could be in bright blues and yellows to add a little pep to the room.

How about cream/yellow, something that goes with the tone of blue. You also could do a soft blue that is 2-3 shades lighter than the countertop.

Maybe a light, cool shade of green that would enhance the blue tones and prevent an overuse of the blue (although I love blue and different shades of it together really are pretty). Or a very light lilac color paint might be nice; or deep lilac for some of the accessories for a little pop.

If you want a calm, sophisticated effect, a cheery yellow isn't what you want. Does a soft grey color appeal to you? not too much, just a touch here and there.
