If you don't want to repaint it, try putting some large artwork on the walls. Or a new towel rack so they can cover it up?

You could also paint a mural or design on it with stencils.

If all else fails, repaint!

You could also do some stripes or squares or whatever in a coordinating color.  Or do a glaze over it with a color to ransform the shade of blue it is.

Sponge paint it...just add 2 parts white to 1 part of the blue & sponge over it lightly...then add 3 parts white to 1 part blue & sponge over that.

I did this with my living & dining rooms...too brown...now I LOVE them & will NEVER change them! ROFL....BF says 'yes we will' hehehe

Many years ago we started going to Mexico once a year for a very relaxing vacation. While out and about shopping I found the Spanish have a really wonderful sense of color its bright and cheery
 
I fell in love with all their fish stuff and bright colors one year I bought a porcelain sink to install with a sea design and  I decided to paint the guest bathroom a light yellow well it was a tad to yellow so I took a light green and sponged the walls and did the trim on the cabinets it toned down the yellow but wow was it a little loud.
OK now what! The decor was a lot of metal work fish hangings, and plaster statues and the wonderful sink! so I though hmmm.

I went to the department store K-mart to be exact and in the toy department I found a huge poster of all kinds of fish and coral swimming under the sea. the main background was black! I went and got a poster frame for 12 bucks put it in the frame and put it on the wall. Wow did it make a difference and was perfect!
I bought a shower curtin that was clear with fish on it and it let the back drop of the shower show which was a light sand color. It broke up the green/yellow

I also found some dollar store pictures of shells and hung them on the other wall. I then took large shipyard rope that was tan and framed the mirror. I also found some towels that had yellow green and purple shell borders and I bought them. Total I think I spentabout 50 dollars on accessories but the bathroom is awesome everyone loves it!
