How Can I Make this Purple & Green Bathroom More Tolerable?

Good Questions

Q: I recently purchased a 1930s craftsman home in San Francisco. While it has many charming period details, I am not enamored of this retro purple and green tiled bathroom. The vanity and basin (and flower tiles) look like they were added sometime in the '70s. None of the purples match. I do plan to renovate eventually, but in the meantime, I'd love some thoughts about paint colors or decorations that will compliment the bright tiles and the variety of purples.
