Redecorating a 1950s Green Bathroom?

My bathroom is in a 1953 house we just bought, the white linoleum is coming up, the green toilet and tub are original to the house. The bathroom walls are all in green to match fixtures, but the sink is white with a marble green top, a later add, and the cabinet is a yellow tone wood like the kitchen. The tile surroundung the tub is 1970s lite green/pinkybeige with lilac pink flowers tiles for accent. The window faces east and the woodwork is a brownish orange. This is too much green for me. I would like to make it more Art Deco in style.


Could I paint the tub tiles in black, as well as the woodwork? I need to find a green sink and new top for the vanity which I would paint black with some mirrors on it. What would I use for the flooring to make it look more authentic? The only other idea I can think of is making my bathroom look like a trellis garden, but am not sure how to do that. Any help and ideas would be greatly appreciated. The bath is small.

I would paint tiles, wood and walls white and get black/white tile look Lino or tiles for the floor. You can get tile paint but would look better to just pull them off and retile in smallish white square tiles (or black/ white checker box if the rest of surfaces are kept white).


Hope this helps.
