If you're stuck with the paint job, you want to make the best use of it you can. The room needs as much light as you can get, and to feel fresh and cool.

u might want to try a purple or an orange to brighten up the room a bit. Other than that any other color will clash the color.

Ayyy Carumba....I have no clue, and I love to decorate! I'd have to say...five gallons of gas and a match? I love the brick wall though,( the rustic look ) so if you can't torch it, go with a rust or brick color. ***
