I'd be tempted to go with a lavender shade for the 2 walls, which would look nice with the greys. I'm thinking of Dulux's Dusted Fondant, Gentle Lavender or Lavender Quartz.

Don't forget to post photos when complete.
Forgot to say the tiles are from Easy Bathrooms. They have been amazing with their before and after sales service.

Bolder floors are popular in bathrooms these days and simple white paint might make a nice, bright contrast to everything else and wouldn't compete. Also, it picks out the white in the flooring, the tiles and the basin.

Happy decorating!
I do worry that white would be too harsh but I do get what you are saying. We would need to mist coat the new plaster anyway so maybe we could see what we think at that point and take it from there.

That's a great idea! Nothing beats actually seeing how a colour works with the light, shape and size of a room.

Also, the flooring you posted and the wooden shelves would warm up white -- but that's just my perspective. I'm probably biased because I like white as a kind of brightening 'neutraliser', with other textures (like wood, basket, fabric) to soften.

Otherwise, maybe a very pale, dusky teal or equally pale, dusky, creamy yellow? (It's difficult to describe colours in words! )
