Good Questions: What Colors Will Save This Space?

A reader needs your advice: I need some urgent help. My co-op is repainting the interiors of our building and unfortunately they have picked the most horrendous colors possible. The walls are a light green and the doors are mauve/purple. We aren't changing the tiles yet so we would need to work with the brown and cream colors...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: newyork(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com)

I would like to suggest to them a warmer palette something that would play off the colors of the tile and the florescent lighting in a more compatible fashion. Does anyone have any ideas? This needs to be resolved in the next few days or I'm afraid it will be too late. Also what are your thoughts on bright red doors with cream or light yellow walls? Please help!!!!!!
