What colour should I paint this bathroom?

Hi, I'm struggling to decide on a colour for our downstairs loo. When we moved in it was a horrible purple. We painted it yellow but I don't like it.
The floor is quarry tiled, the tiles are white and navy, the loo pipework is navy and the bottom of the bath is also navy.
It is in an extension so is a rather cold room, never exactly cosy. It is off the kitchen which is painted Farrow and Ball Cooking Apple Green.
Any suggestions for a new colour?

I would go with navy and white stripes, either horizontal as shown below or vertical. It's a funky space so funk it up a bit more. Add crisp white towels. It would be nice to paint the medicine cabinet white also.

Keep it simple...lots going on. Being that this bathroom is off the kitchen, the kitchen looks like it has green on the walls and you dont want to introduce too many new elements, i would consider the following: paint it the same color as the kitchen...so they flow together, and stay with white or brick colored towels (cuz of the floor) or i would simply do white walls and make the bathroom all black and white..you cant go wrong!

Thank you both. I think I'll go with white. As you can see I had splodged a load of white on the walls anyway. Actually it was cream, but perhaps a pure white would look best with the white tiles.

Yes, it would be nice to match the tiles with your white.

If you leave the navy where it is, do add a bit more navy, as kobley suggests with navy towels, or paint the space around your window navy or add a navy clock or rug or perhaps a navy and white pic.

If you paint the walls and the wood ALL white, it will make the room look larger ... and maybe do the toilet seat navy to make the navy in the tile pop ....
