All other walls are white.

Yes if you have some pictures that could help us. Black and white rooms can be very striking.

looks fabulous. Depends how bold/brave you want to be, but I've noticed lime green is a key colour at the moment. A friend of mine also had a black and white bathroom and used cerise pink towels which also looked amazing, with one or two accents.. perhaps with a roman blind in stripes with one of the colours picked out in it? flexible and cheaper way of keeping your bathroom up to date.

rayess - your bathroom will only be plain if you let it be. You have a great base here all you need are accessories to add the wow. As already suggested lime green and cerise are good choices also red, orange or bold shades of yellow. Even white towels with silver bling. The best thing with accessories is that you can have several sets and change them out to suit your moods at minimal expense. Add things slowly so you don't overdo it.

I agree with olldroo, you have a great start. I like the idea of the black and white base and using accessories, like art and towels, to bring in the color. You can totally change the room with a few items. I think you could add some blue-greens to all the good color suggestions listed above.
