Bathroom Flooring to Complement Subway Tile?

Good Questions

Q: I'm in the midst of making decisions for a bathroom remodel, and am a bit stumped on what tile to use on the flooring. I'll be doing a white subway tile with medium to dark grey grout on the tub surround, and would personally prefer to use a small octagon tile for the floor, but my husband's only preference for the entire bathroom is that the floor tile not be small, as it's difficult to clean. Does anyone have any good ideas for a matching tile?

I'm attaching a photo of the decisions I've made so far: white tile, vessel sink, Cedar & Moss light fixtures (love). I'm on the hunt for a vintage dresser or buffet that I can transform into a vanity to bring in some warm wood to balance the cold modernness of everything else. Thanks!
