Black vanity bench or white???

Black vanity bench or white???

Is that tile you've shown your floor and wall-to-ceiling tile? If so, I'd probably stick to white, I think it would be a better contrast.

Mist white would suit those tiles that are in the picture, it is an off white but will look white against a darker brown tile.
