Help, Paint Colors

I think I have too many choices.  I go to Home Depot and just ooohh and aaahhh at all of the colors.  I finally narrowed it down to 6.  The bathroom wall is starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I bring home those Color Samples and paint a patch.   Help me please.  What do you think? Keep in mind that slate has so many different colors from green to pink and purple.  Our bathroom is roomy but not spacious.  We have two windows and alot of light.
1. Antique Copper (looked better in the store)
2. Catalina Coast
3. not a color, just a white patch on a hole.
4. Berudan Blue (maybe too blue)

1. Antique Tin
2. Creek Bend
3. Down Pour
Remember the tub surround?
While I was working at the hospital for the last 2 days Ted has been busy. 
Yep, he has been busy with bead board and trim.  He even built me a step because I have short legs and would kill myself getting out of the tub. Remember fractured wrist and leg.  I guess I have lost his trust. I just can't wait to get the bathroom finished.   
We had to get started on painting the bedroom, sanding, staining and finishing the wood floors.  It is really coming along. We both are exhausted but pleased with the work. Let me know what paint colors look best. Thanks.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm

You two are amazing! I pick 'Creek Bend' (only since you didn't have one named 'Peanut', mind you.)

I like the antique copper. Just seems to bring it all together.

my two cents - I like creek bend - any accent colors will go beautifully with it and not too cold a color. Ted is doing some gorgeous work there!

i am a color freak and the one to use is creek bend. because the slate is so colorful, it is the one to use. if you go with another, it will pull that color out in the slate and that will drown the other colors in the slate. it looks fabulous! i need a helper like that around here!

also...the creek bend will be offset buy the white and it will really pop!

Call me crazy but I'd choose the color that best complimented my own skin coloring. I'm an Autumn and tend toward the jewel tones so there's a lot of warm colors in our home. I also prefer the warm colors; nice work, Ted!

Well....don't you know you opened a can of worms asking for a bunch of women to help you pick your paint!!! First I must say that when Ted is finished I've got a few things for him to do here!!!!!

I think that because the slate and tub are the focal points of the room you should keep your tones low. I'd go with a very lightly tinted grey. Nothing too contrasting to the slate. Seems as if everyone likes the Creek Bend...I do too if I have to pick one. Keep it low key though...just my 2¢.

Wow, Kelly....that bathroom is beautiful!!! Great job. I agree that a more neutral color will make the slate stand out. The more colorful ones will downplay the slate! Just beautiful!!

So....which color did you choose?
