How about wallpaper in the master bath?

I was interested in shiplap, but I understand that it's probably not the best fit for our home.

So now -- what about wallpaper in the master bathroom?

When we bought our '69 ranch it had dark brown wallpaper with gold splotches

When we did a cheap update in 1999, I changed it to purple and wildflowers

Now, in 2018 -- I was hoping to get rid of wallpaper.

But, the walls are wallpapered. I don't intend to move walls.. Could we strip this wallpaper, prep and put up new wallpaper and would that save any money? I think many remodelers just want to rip out our drywall and redo -- but that sounds wasteful.

If I did a wallpaper, could I do a faux grasscloth?

On the one hand I don't really want wallpaper. On the other hand, I don't want tile on the walls, and some texture / interest would be nice.

I saw cute dog wallpaper on the aging in place thread. Perhaps we could be whimsical...

What do you think? I saw a wallpaper in the bathroom thread from 2010, time to bring it up again.

Is this any better than shiplap??
