Paint Color to Suit Greenish Yellow Tile?

Paint Color to Suit Greenish Yellow Tile?

Q: I've been living in my apartment for 1 year now. The bathroom (larger photos below) has terribly hideous greenish/yellowish/mossy colored tile. I've tried so hard to brighten up the bathroom with different color rugs, towels etc. Nothing has worked. It is truly an eye-sore to be in there. I've renewed my lease and asked my landlord if I could paint. Since I will be in this apartment for a while it's really time that I do something to this bathroom. I've tried yellow, mint green, blue and purple paint samples and nothing seems to look right against this tile.
