Pretty grose original bathroom but it seems to be more of a colour scheme issue (not something I would want to wake up to in the morning) than bad design. Lots of work to rip it out and start all over but the light airiness of the new scheme is nice. One thing that makes me wonder is all this shiplap craze being something akin to the panelling of the 60's/70's - will everyone be looking to rip it out down the road since it is so specific a style? Something to think about as everyone delves into it.

Mitsy, now that someone else brought it up...I’m already getting tired of shiplap. Just seeing it too many places. I don’t think it will age well. But consider that the old bath decor was around 20 years old, and dated. That’s about the style life of bathroom, unless you do it in plain, classic design.

pfmaher, yes the shiplap [and farmhouse sink] craze is on. It's not that it isn't attractive in the right applications but it is a bold style and not easily changeable. Years back panelling lasted a long time but then they didn't change out their decor as frequent as people do today. Its understandable people like something different, but that is where color comes into play as something easily modified (and fixtures, etc.). Just something to consider.
