50s bathroom floor

We are replacing the floor in our 1950s bathroom. Not a complete overhaul, just the floor to fix an unsightly crack that runs the length of the bathroom and hopes to make it a little easier on the eyes too. The walls are light orange with a black stripe. My question is in regards to design for the tiles we pick. I'm thinking we should pick tiles that look like they fit the era of the rest of the bathroom and stay away from more modern ones. Just wondering if anybody has input or has seen/done this type of update and maybe if you could show me what you used.

Be aware this floor may be set on about 2" of concrete. It was standard back in the era. If you are determined to do it, demolition will be strenuous and you will have to build up the joists and subflooring so you can install new tile. We can help you through it.
