Which Wall Tile with Existing Floor Tile?

Good Questions

Q: I own a 1926 Craftsman Bungalow, and I'm planning to update the bathroom tile this spring. The previous owners installed a period-appropriate hexagon tile floor, and although I love it I'm not completely crazy about the beige/cream color. Regardless, the floor is staying.

I'd like to replace the gross, generic wall tile, but I'm sort of at a loss. I'd probably opt for white subway tile with a dark grout, but I think that would definitely clash with the flooring. Should I install colored tile? Or try to match the beige? I'm not crazy about either idea, but can't come up with better solutions. Any feedback is much appreciated!
