Go with colors that mellow out the room. Earth tones are best for this. Perhaps a tan or beige would work.
Mint green is a pretty assertive color, isn't it :) A couple of things you can try. One would be using a darker or more muted shade of green, to connect with the mint but tone it down a bit. Another way would be to use some large artwork that won't be harmed by water (or is cheap enough for it not to matter) to cover a good chunk or chunks of the wall area.
A darker or more muted shower curtain which stays fully or partly closed will give you a large area of darker color to tone down the walls. If all else fails, maybe you could repaint - it's a bathroom, so probably not very big. Even repaint just some walls and leave the mint green on one wall as a feature?
I cant really gove you an answer,but what I can give you is a way to a solution, that is you have to find the anglde that you relate to or peaks your interest. A good paper is one that people get drawn into because it reaches them ln some way.As for me WW11 to me, I think of the holocaust and the effect it had on the survivors, their families and those who stood by and did nothing until it was too late.
