We cannot figure out what to do on the walls. One wall has black and gold tiles and we need to figure out what to do for the other three.

I don’t want to do black because I think that would be too dark (vanity and countertop will be dark too). Any ideas or advice?

Vanilla (ivory, but it sounds more delicious that way)

That's bold, but risky. Depending on the tiles, vanity, countertop, etc., it could look really rich or really cheap.

Patterned wallpaper which should also include a third lighter color.

So many different opinions! I can’t do wallpaper, we tried but it made everything look too busy. I’m afraid to do metallic.

I thought white would look funny as a third color but it might make the most sense because the toilet will be white and maybe I’ll do a white sink. Does that sound ok?

Maybe you can have some subtle wide strips in the white/cream/ivory family along with the base color? Or just do the solid white. I think that should work.
You could always find a small picture to hang that would pull it all together.

Then toilet and sink should also be cream and not white.

I would go with cream or ivory. White would distract from the black and gold.

But if they're functioning and they're white, that's what OP has to work with.

Then at least the wall should match.

I definitely think white.
If you do an image search on google you can get a lot of ideas

Cream!
You don't need to match the facilities to the walls.

Another vote for white. Sharp!

Or taupe.
Or colorblock- bottom 3/4 white, top 1/4 black.
Or a wallpaper with gold in it.
