Vintage buildings have plenty of charm, but some original elements can pose a decorating challenge. Rather than cringe at something you don’t like, embrace it and find a work-around. If the bathroom tile is a shade you can’t stand, pick a color you do like to serve as the room’s main hue. The tone of green used in this bathroom has just a twinge of yellow which helps the accents to stand out and the yellow tile to recede. Try a blue-green with powder blue tile or sherbet orange with salmon color tile.
