  • white is always a good color and of courese would go with the light green. If not white then it has to be a nice color that goes nicely with the green. Maybe a very ver fainth yellow?

  • the brighter the color, like white, pp had mentioned...will briing in more light. I had a small bathroom as well and white with a bunch of vanity lights helped and then i decorated it with a color, i did light green like you but you have to know, if the room is small, you decorate so your eye reaches to the top which makes the room bigger like i had put a shelf above the vanity light and placed green dinner plates that matched on that shelf. Work your way down, shades of green in an artwork that is placed just below the shelf of plates somewhere.

    you can always add fabric with velcro to attach it on an item in your bathroom to create a skirt

  • My bathroom is tiny too! We have it painted a ice blue. I change the curtains and rugs as often to season or Holiday. Best of luck. Have a light neutral color so you can change things up! Best of luck!
