What colour wall paint for these tiles?

New build half tiled bathroom. Dh wants something light but it’s north facing so pure white looks quite dowdy.

They are a warm beige with a darker beige faux marble vein.

When I moved into this house the bathroom had tiles like that with white walls, and I hated it. I painted the walls a warm taupey grey and it looks much better. Accessories/towels are either burnt orange or mustard yellow.

Might also look good with a sage or olive green?

Similar to mine and I'm north facing too. I've gone with F&B pointing.

I’ve always like pointing. The fireplace was meant to be pointing but Dh bought James white by accident.

Good ceiling colour too.

Ooh they are tricky! Would sage work?

Yes but it’s north facing. Every time a house comes up for sale on the road I check what bathroom tiles they got and no ones got faux marble except us.

They’ve all got ceramic neutral.


I genuinely think whoever chose our tiles and kitchen was pissed. There’s no other rational explanation.

Next door have a lovely kitchen and are basically dirty so and so’s who don’t look after it.
