Help me choose some bathroom tiles...

We're redoing the bathroom and I'm planning on using Harvey Maria's parquet neisha crosland flooring in turquoise or maybe charcoal. I can't work out which tiles will go....

Ideally I want to use the turquoise flooring and have mostly white tiles with a border of green/turquoise tiles which match the floor colour but I can't find a green to match anywhere (I don't want mosaic tiles, thinking more metro size/shape ideally). Can anyone help find the right green?

If I can't find a matching green what tiles should I do with the charcoal? I love pintrest and see lots of things I like in theory but I'm finding it hard in practice to work out what goes together. Plain white seems dull but I don't want anything faddy (herringbone metros, hexagons etc.) which will look dated in a year or two. We plan to stay in our house but if secondary schools don't work out we may need to sell so want to make sure it could appeal to a wide audience. Any ideas?

Topps do one in their Attingham range; the colour is Seagrass. The manufacturer is Johnsons in Stoke. They call the tile their Savoy range. It's available in two different sizes (the 40x15cm is exclusive to Topps) and a lot cheaper if you buy direct from them. The same colour as the Topps Seagrass is called Leaf.

There are also a couple of other turquoise brick shaped tiles Topps sell which might work.

And Bathstore had a beautiful art nouveau style tile in a deep turquoise which would look great as a border. Might not work with those floor tiles though. I can't remember what it was called and don't know if they still do it.

Thanks wow.I really like the Attingham seagrass ones but they don't match the turquoise, could go with the charcoal flooring and those tiles...

Bathstore ones are a great colour but yes maybe the designs dont match, I didn't realise bathstore did tiles though so that's another source...

I found these Villeroy and Boch ones from a german website which might be an ideal colour if I can hold of a sample...

Actually the Seagrass with the grey flooring would look lovely. There is colour variation in the tiles - I think that means they go with more than you think.
