Some may find painted brick walls to be too rugged, harsh, or even shoddy. In my book, these coated exposed brickworks are fantastic! They provide great visual texture and make the room instantly feel cozy. It's an inexpensive way to upgrade the look of any home. A painted brick wall is one of the most desired cost-effective interior improvements, actually.

The process can be quite challenging, but the outcome is well worth it! This article gives advice on how to properly paint a room, and I find the rules highly applicable, except for the part about sanding and scraping to make the walls smooth. In brick walls, texture is key.

Right on top of my color preference for painted brickworks are black and white. I also like cool hues such as Carrie Mathison's {Homeland} Cambridgeblue brick wall, ash gray, and pistachio. 

This looks good with either contemporary or dated furniture; even better when you mix the two. To temper the harshness of the wall, you can add draperies, throw pillows, flowers, area rugs, and lots of framed photos. You can find more tips on how to do this here.
