Wall color in powder room

Any ideas what color I should paint the walls of my powder room?
The tile is cream/black. The cabinet will be dark wood.

Is there a colour in the adjoining room/hall that you'd like to pick up in your powder room?
You can keep it neutral (beige, tan, cream) or go more colourful. A stunning wallpaper could be nice.

Have you browsed the Houzz photo section for inspiration? http://www.houzz.com/photos/powder-room

A more creamed color would help warm up the powder room.

Thanks!

Adjoining hallway is just white. The living room past the hallway has a dark blue (almost midnight) accent wall.

I don't mind a "strong" color but worry that a purple for eg might be too overwhelming, while a cream might just be too plain.

Any more thoughts? Paint has definitely been the most difficult decision process in this entire renovation so far!! :-)

A darker cream, like the Tan suggested by Dytecture, or a taupe colour could work very well. I'm assuming you'll have white porcelain in the powder room? That will look very nice. You can dress it up with a beautiful light fixture, mirror....
Or a really interesting wallpaper, like an architectural wallpaper that will add depth or a floral one. I found a couple of examples for you. The architectural one that I was thinking of doesn't have the monkeys (unless you like the monkeys), but that additional pic gives a good image of what it would look like.
Here's the link to where I found the wallpapers. They have terrific options, endless hours of browsing fun ;-)
