Paint Color Ideas for Basement Apartment Entrance?

Good Questions

Q: The basement is currently painted grey with one accent wall in an eggplant color. By the basement entrance, half of the wall is brick. I was thinking of painting the brick one color and the remaining wall (which has very high ceilings) another. Do you have any suggestions?

Should I just paint it all one color? I figured more grey might be overkill. As you can see, it's pretty gloomy down those stairs and I'm hoping some color might brighten it up.
