Bottle green tiles - yea or nay?

That's it really - small loft bathroom, feel like I should go for something bland like travertine, but seen these little (10cm2) crackle glaze squares that I really like. Husband says it'll look like a gents loo.
Planning to sell the house in the next few years, so has to not be utterly repellent.

Could you do a link to the tiles so it's easier to visualise? I think it would be fine, but personally I wouldn't tile everywhere in such a strong colour, so part tile the walls, or just the shower area etc. Maybe something like the bathroom here or break it up with white. I find my husband has difficulty visualising things unless I can show him exactly what I mean - can you find a picture of the sort of end result you want?

I really wanted to use beautiful pale blue metro tiles in our en suite, but I'm doing matching white ones, then just a border of the beautiful ones, otherwise I think it will be too encroaching. Ours is about 2m by 2.5m.

Especially as you're selling I'd do something plain and non-offensive to the masses. A border of your chosen tiles, or maybe one wall, wouldnt be offputting or too costly for the new buyer if they really hated them.

Thank you for al your help - esp for the links! Here is the tile:
I have the downstairs bathroom in their retro metro grey, it's beautiful

They're a lovely colour. Don't get the gents loo comparison at all.
