Desperately need help with our half bath. Current photo attached - not pretty! Currently peach and teal.

We want to do some kind of deep/bold color, but we are totally stuck.

First instinct was a dark blue, like navy, as a friend did a similar color scheme and it worked well, but the black tile along the bottom scares me. Don't know if I can paint over that?

Also not sure what to do with the trim.

Any ideas are so appreciated. Thank you!

know you have a window so it won't become a cave but why not use one of the deeper colors from the tile? do you have anything navy in other rooms?

Navy color would be too dark. I would suggest you use some sober and neutral color.
