I finally painted the bathroom wall uber dark gray and I'm so glad I did!  I have to admit that the process was really nerve racking and not because I rent the place.  This is the first time I have painted a wall so dark, I felt like I was doing something wrong (when I was younger I desperately wanted to paint my room a color other than white, when my dad finally agreed he picked the lightest shade of yellow, you had to look really hard and then maybe you could tell it was yellow).  Anyway besides the almost nervous break down I'm very happy with it.
p.s. I should probably mention that I was raised in an all white, modern minimalist home where we were not allowed to touch the walls.  It still drives me crazy to this day when someone leans on my walls. Cray cray I know, what can ya do?
Here's a before not bad just a bit too restoration hardware for me.

pss I'm thinking I might change out the sconce shades for the silver tipped light bulbs I have in the rest of the house.
