We just moved into a new house and my master bedroom is a light green and I have a light green comforter. The master bath has brown tile on the floor and when I put the green on the brown tile it looked out of place to me. Maybe I could have left it there longer and tried to get used to it.
I am looking for something to go with the brown and the green. I am now trying a mauve and it does look a bit better than the green. Do the master bedroom and bath need to be the same colors? Do mauve and green go together? The rooms are fairly large.

You should use a light shade of the brown/beige on the walls. The bathroom should be done in semi-gloss and the bedroom can be done in satin. And yes, do both rooms the same color if they join.
In the Benjamin Moore color pallet, you should think about Cedar or something close to it providing that it is in the same family of the brown on the floor.

Click on white in the drop down menu and then keep clicking on shades near what you are want.
In a room, one should chose two main colors and then chose a third color to use as an accent. Maybe orange in a bold shade. You could use orange pillows with the shade of brown in a deeper richer color on the bed.
One thing to always remember is that the paint should compliment the color of the wood furniture in the room. Wood comes in many shades leaning from a yellow or red undertone. Just made sure that the paint looks good against it.
I am including a photo to give you an idea of how brown and green look. Also, consider painting your trim semi-gloss white to brighten the area.

The photo is just a thought.
My bedroom is blue and gold. My master bathroom is beige and brown. Should I use blue or gold accents in the bathroom to coordinate with my bedroom? The two rooms open to each other.
Gold would be the better choice.
I have been liking gold right now. It depends what color you want though :) I think both would be fine!
I'd go with blue because the gold would just kind of blend in with what's there now.
