I would use the swiss coffee family, semi gloss, that will also break the white. Using light color scheme will make the area seem open and spacious.

I love your white wave surface cabinets - whatever lighting you uses needs to create enough shadow to bring it out. I would just continue with a muted white
But my dual personality says....... if you have red pendant lights, and royal blue silestone counter, go a bit crazy and paint the walls sunshine yellow add black accents and you have your Mondrian inspired primary colour palette!

I like the direction of the color sample you have on the wall.

One thing I heard that is important in the color of bathroom walls is to remember that the color is going to reflect on you, so say you have a limey green (like a friend of mine briefly did)...every time she looked in the mirror she looked ill. Green. It's wise to use colors that won't make you look like you have the flu...it's hard to do make-up well with a difficult color skewing your complexion. Just something I thought was interesting and not usually considered. Try websites like sherwin williams where you can upload a photo and drop in any colors you want and play with it. I just decided the colors for our exterior today using it. A direction at least as I'll still try samples.

I'm in California and could take a look there. Can you post a picture that shows the whole cabinet? How long is it? I can't go over 48 inches the cabinet I have now is 45 which are impossible to find.
