Open Question to the F-List (and Drop-Ins)

The first thing you should know about me is that I don't like the color pink.

There. Now that that's out of the way, I can go on to the subject of my post. I've had some mildew and mold that recurs in my bathroom and G-Dude is going to paint it beginning on Tuesday the 19th. I have to pick a color to paint the walls and the trim.

It's currently off-white, leaning toward the green ever so slightly, with a light green trim. So is my bedroom. Boring, I know. But here's the problem. The previous owner of the house was named Rose. So you can guess what her favorite color was. The sink is outside the tiny bathroom and is, thankfully, white. Country white, but white. Meanwhile, in the tiny bathroom, the floor is tiled in a mixture of pink and white little tile pieces. The toilet is pink (though I put a new seat on and it's bone). And even the tub is pink. Yup. A pink tub. As in Pepto-pink.

So given this set of colors, what color range can I paint the bathroom? Never fear, I'll have Miss E do the final color selection. But I don't know where to start. As I understand things, I shouldn't go too dark in such a tiny space. And no, you may NOT suggest pink as a color. Ack! Ack! I shall cough up a hairball in your general direction if you do.
