Dark Grey Bathrooms

So, I've been thinking about re-painting the guest bathroom for the past six months or so, and I've committed to do it this weekend. The only problem is that I can't quite seem to make a decision on the actual color. The bathroom has classic, simple white furnishings--but there's definitely a catch: the tile around the tub is light pink, edged with maroon.

Initially, I considered going light: a soothing taupe or beige to keep the room neutral. But now I'm hankering to make the bathroom a bit more dramatic with a dark hue, and I initially considered painting the room a rich espresso. However, after some consideration, I'm worried that with the pink tiles and white sink and tub, the bathroom will look like Neapolitan ice cream. A friend of mine suggested that I try a dark grey instead: "I think it'll go well with all the white pedestal sink and vintage style hardware. Keep the trim white, paint the walls grey, and then you can play with a wide range of pink and reds as accent colors."

What do you think of dark grey bathrooms? Here's a few photos from Living Etc.:
