Paint Color for Loft Bathroom?

Good Questions

Q: I'm trying to choose a paint color for a small entryway half bath. My place is an 800sf loft with exposed beams and wood ceiling. I've refinished some old barn board that I'll be mounting horizontally on the feature (mirror/sink) wall.

The bathroom has a small white pedestal sink and white trim:

I don't know where to start with paint color - I usually choose dark warm colours, but I was warned that may make the room feel very small. It's about 6x4ft. I have a lot of woods and vintage items so I'd like to contrast that a bit with a more modern color. Any ideas?
