Am I Crazy? Bathroom wallpaper.

We are about to paint our master bath, but I just fell in love with this Scalamandre Raphael wallpaper. Am I crazy to wallpaper a bathroom?

The wall tiles are high so I'm not concerned about water splashing from the sink. And we would not wallpaper the ceiling or the area around the shower. This is our primary bath though, and we will be showering here daily. It has no exhaust fan (co-op won't allow) so we will be opening a small window each time we shower. Am I asking for trouble wallpapering in here?

I wish they made this as a fabric and I would just use it as a shower curtain instead! We will be replacing the light mirror for something more traditional, and perhaps eventually the sink. Our apartment is in NYC and I love the idea of softening this room to make it feel like a dreamy escape.
