I have a bathroom with pink tile. The house was built in 1948. Without replacing the tile, what can I do to update it and what colors should I use?

Pix would be helpful and get you more responses. Pink and navy, or pink and gray, both with white, would look smart and up to date.

pic for inspiration.
If your pink bathroom has a black trim you could add a printed blk/wht shower curtain complementary bath mat and black and white framed prints for the wall as a start. Give it an art deco flavor
hang a chandelier
white towels with black trim/border
pink finger towels to match the pink tiles etc
go with the retro look but updated. Best not to try and make it something that it isn't. http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://www.bathroomtilesuk.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Pink-Bathroom-Accessories.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.bathroomtilesuk.co.uk/2012/03/27/art-deco-bathrooms/&h=518&w=425&sz=59&tbnid=68N12CbVgVk4lM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=74&zoom=1&usg=___XViw9uHJPaO7A856q96PQXYse8=&docid=hHED8_kuH69gAM&sa=X&ei=QCtoUavBNtjH4AO_j4HQBg&ved=0CDUQ9QEwAQ&dur=538

Oh lord, my first house had pink tile with black trim. Lots and lots of pink tile in excellent condition. Pink bathtub, pink shower, pink toilet. I love vintage tiled bathrooms but pink and black? I tried black accents, white accents, gray accents. It was still pink and black. The final solution was to sell the house. Ah, memories.
