Exposed ...

I don't care what anyone says, I absolutely love exposed brick. Not only does it add character to a home, it more importantly stays true to the character of a home. If your house is old enough to have authentic brick walls exposed, it would be a crime (a sin!) to hide them behind drywall. I've always been envious of people with lofts in downtown areas because they almost always come with beautiful exposed brick walls. There's something very appealing about the juxtaposition between the roughness of the brick and the softness of furniture, curtains and pillows...  If the color of your brick doesn't blend well with the rest of your decor, don't shy away from painting it. Even if you paint your wall a neutral color, the textural element of the brick will create a great sense of interest and impact.
