will white paint make my bathroom look more clean or more dirty?

we rent in an olllllllld apartment. the fixtures in our bathroom are white, but not matching. and some of them are um, dingy white. ie, white tub liner that's a bit stained from water damage and mildew (there's no mildew on it, but it still remembers a time when there was). the bathroom doesn't get a lot of ventilation so the walls get mildew on them. we want to attack! we have bleach-cleaned the walls and want to paint them with white mildewcide paint, but is this a good idea or will it make the old-and-off-white-ness of the fixtures stand out? our landlord won't replace the tub liner and we can't afford to either, so it is staying. our dream is this
but we know we can't have that. can we get close or is it just going to end up gross? any ideas?
