Farrow and ball colours?

Hi all, I am painting my downstairs loo tomorrow and am looking at the f&b range. At the moment it is a black and White theme. I have grey tiles on the floor and White Walls at the moment.
I want a colour that will still go with the tiles. It is a south facing room that gets alot of light. I like the colour old White but I'm not sure this will go? I also have a black and White stripe blind that ideally I would like to keep.
I don't want to go very dark in there as it's not a big room.
Any ideas? X

It's hard to advise without seeing it, but just be careful with f&b as sometimes it rubs off!

I've said it on past hreads and I'll say it again, you just need to use 'Hamster's breath'

If you go with Old White make sure you do testers on all of your walls. I've just done it in my hall, which I thought was quite a bright area, and it has made it feel dark, but in other, v bright areas it looks almost white (til you compare it with the ceiling).

Right ok thanks for your replies. Would you know of any other f&b colours that would go nice with grey tiles? X they seem to do lots of different whites?

I used a light grey - blue called Borrowed Light and I think it could go well with black and white.

oohh thats a nice colour, never would have thought of doing a blue colour. Is it really a light blue? I was thinking I would like more of a grey but sometimes grey can be abit cold. I wanted to get away from just white walls but not sure at all now what to go for? x

It's a really beautiful more blue than grey. Like being in the clouds. Check out the F&B website ot google images and you will see!

Thank you for everyone's reply. Just to let you know that I have painted today and I used borrowed light. It is so so lovely, I never would have thought of putting this colour with black and White but it really compliments and goes so well, thanks again xx
