Color Ideas to Work with 1960s Bathroom Tile?

Good Questions

Q: Hi everyone! We just bought our first house, and we're really excited to do some minor renovations. Unfortunately, bathrooms are not in the budget just yet. These two bathrooms have the original 1967 tile, and while we don't mind the tile too much, the colors are a little challenging to work with — a sort of salmon/brown in one and a drab olive in the other. Any ideas for paint colors or other minor updates that would liven up these rooms? Thank you!
