Okay, I have a small half bath on my main floor so this is the "guest" bathroom when people come over.

I really need helping picking a color/theme, etc

I am totally running dry on creative energy for that room for some reason...

Oh, we also neeeeed to change the flooring. It is ugly ugly sticker tiles right now.

The counter top is a bluish color too if that helps (although we plan on ripping it out and replacing with a pedestal sink)

Yellow for wall paint, white for ceiling paint.

Purple, either purple-purple or lavnder for the towels and things you add.

Stay with white for the sink, and toilet.

Silver colored faucets and cabinet pulls (if you have any cabinets) and silver also for hand towel holder and TP holder. If you are replacing light fixtures, go with silver and also put silver plates on any electrical outlets nd light switches, could be plain or something fancy with scroll work.

For the floor, if it's a tiny room, then go with as good quality/expensive real tile... slate maybe... in a grayish color that you can afford.

for the wastecan either do plain silver or white with some sort of yellow and purple designs painted on it that you do yourself.

Don't put a squishy seat on th toilet if it's for guests, I find those things just weird to sit on!

find something in your house that you absolutely love the color of, not a color that you think would be good for decorating necessarily, but a color that makes you feel really happy. it could be any object in any color, but your closet or your jewelry box would be great places to look. paint the walls that color, get handtowels a couple shades darker or lighter, and let everything else (floor, ceiling, fixtures, trim) be white. you can also get a couple of white picture frames and put up photos that pick up the same color, or a fun print fabric in those colors, or something like that. rug optional.
