...it's going to be a few years before we can redo the entire room. In the interim, I thought I'd try to find a way to draw the eye away from the eye to a series of contrasting colours (or one strong theme) in the form of shower curtain, floor rugs, toilet seat, cover & other accessories.

What colour do you think would work with this pink and minimize the room's pepto-bismalness?

Please add your color suggestions for this room to the comments below...thanks!
