String Lights in the Bathroom?

Good Questions

Q: When I first moved into my apartment, I had two sets of string lights that I hung up in my bedroom. I liked the ambiance they created. A year later, I took them down, thinking they might look tacky and that maybe I would just save them for Christmas. A few weeks later, I was trying out new ideas for the half-bath downstairs.

The ceiling light doesn't cast a great light over the whole room, and the separating curtain I hung up didn't help. Since I rent, it wasn't worth installing a new light. And then I got the idea to use my string lights. My question is: Does this work or does it look tacky?
