Your opinion on this tile & paint color

I'm having trouble deciding on some interior colors. Would appreciate any
opinions.

The actual paint color is called "off-white" from wal mart. For the trim I
used high gloss exterior white. I do like the look of the trim. But my
concern was that there was too much beige with the addition of the tile.

I painted the utility room these colors as a test, then laid down a few
sample pieces of tile. This color scheme is what I was considering for the
kitchen and bathroom.

For most of us ordinary guys, who are of course smarter and more
perceptive than women and interior decorators, there are really only 3
colors in the world: Red, Green and Blue and maybe White and Black.
That's rule number 1. Rule number 2 is that ANY two colors will go
together. It's when you add the third color that you can really get
into trouble.

Rule number 3 is that if there are any women around that will look at
it, you will be wrong no matter what you do. Women can see colors 50
feet away in a paint that's called "off-white". They'll see red in your
off-white and ask you why you choose that color when you have an
off-white washing machine with blue in it.

So, if you have any women in your life, let them pick the colors. If
you don't, paint the walls and trim the same color of a "neutral" white
and then when that certain women comes along let her knock herself out
decorating with any colors she wants to.

mix all gallons of the job color together to minimize any batch
differences.

Interior decorators call this the "boring beige blues." But it's all
about personal preference. Personally I like white trim. You could
paint the walls dark green or brown for a contrast and earthy look.

It is a nice, clean color scheme. I don't have the nerve for dramatic
paint colors that some people do, so your color scheme is close to my
taste. Can always add color with accessories. The wall color could,
perhaps, be a little warmer to pick up the warm tones of the tile.

Ok thanks to everyone for the input. It was very helpful.
