Designing a bathroom in shades of green and grey requires specific choices in the tone of green you choose. Select a green with yellow overtones for a wider option of coordinating grey shades. Green with magenta, such as turquoise or aqua, limits the greys you use. Once the green has been chosen, look at light greys, grey taupes or silver to complete the primary colours for your bathroom. Accents in white, yellow or honey add sparkle to your bathroom.

Designing any room begins with the floor. In most cases, you are limited by what is currently in the bathroom. However, if you have a choice, look for a crisp white or grey tile. Distressed laminate flooring in bisque or honey is attractive. If you have an area rug that is dominant in the room, gauge all your green and grey colour choices on the colours in the rug.
Be bold. Find a green paint that makes a statement. Don't worry about the intensity of the green closing in on you. Instead, use mirrors, artwork, decorative shelf pieces or an array of colourful towels to add dimension. Wallpapers come in a wide variety of patterns -- florals and stripes being favourites. Look for a pattern that is spacious, not tiny and intricate, and one that incorporates several shades of green.
Gray granite or marble vanities make an elegant statement in a bathroom. A white marble with a grey vein is passive and works as a base for introducing your other colours into the room. If you choose a green granite, the shades of green will dictate all your other colour choices within the green spectrum. Other vanity fabrications include cultured marble that can be custom colour blended and honey-coloured wood or Formica. A bold choice would be a vanity laid with green ceramic tiles. However, the green tile should be selected prior to the wall paint for a good colour match.
Adding the Gray
Gray floorboards and crown moulding contrast nicely with green. You can also paint your ceiling grey. Silver lighting contributes to the grey overtones, and silver wall accessories continue the theme. A decorative box in grey or silver placed upon a vanity, grey towels, silver vases and silver silk flowers are attractive.
The safest choice when decorating with green and grey is to choose white bathroom fixtures. Toilets, sinks, bathtubs and bidets can all be accessorised in your colour scheme. White also allows you to change your colour choices when you want to remodel without the expense of purchasing new fixtures.
A green jade plant, fern or potted floor plant add life to a bathroom while incorporating your colour scheme. Stack green and grey towels, with a honey-coloured towel in the middle, for a vibrant and easy-to-reach storage solution. Find utility accessories, such as hand soap, bath gel, and even toothbrushes if they remain exposed, in the green or grey colour scheme. Window coverings should be in grey or honey-cream to blend passively into the decor.
