How should I finish the wall behind my farmhouse style bathroom vanity

Help, opinions please!!

I am conflicted on how to decorate the wall behind my new bathroom vanity. It is farmhouse style, 48" charcoal grey (blue hued) with carrera marble top and brushed nickel fixtures. I was going to do all ship-lap but started to feel like it was ship-lap overkill.

Should I continue with the ship-lap? or do wallpaper? or small 1x2" subtle but sparkley tiles such as mother of pearl, or glass tiles, or even small stone veneer?

The ship lap goes halfway up the wall behind the vanity. What is the appropriate place to stop it and transition into a different material?

The mirror in the photo is the mirror that will go in that space, but the two wall lights there now are going in the trash. So suggestions on lighting would be great too.

Details.....The wall is 78" wide by 8ft (96") high. The floors are rustic grey laminate, the ship lap and trim are pure white. The tub/shower combo is white with brushed nickel fixtures and will have light grey 6x18 tiles all around.
