Wall Colors to Complement Floor Tiles?

Good Questions

Q: Hi there! I'm in need of advice. I've lived in my apartment for quite a while, and I've had no success picking colours to match the floor tiles, which are predominantly a mossy blue-green with patches of grey and natural orange. As you can see they're a very unique pattern and texture (they have a rough, natural texture) and they're quite striking but not necessarily pleasant!

Replacing them is not an option due to cost- they cover a signifcant amount of floor space including the front foyer, kitchen, both bathrooms, and hallway to the main bedroom. Any color palette suggestions for the walls would be greatly appreciated!
