Natalie would like some advice: "So. I just signed a lease for an apartment on Times Square and my one stipulation was that I really wanted exposed brick. Well, the apartment is fabulous, but no exposed brick, so I had to go for it, but I still want my brick wall! What do you guys think of that faux brick wallpaper? Home Depot even has it. I don't know! Is it awful? Apparently it is highly embossed...
And if it IS awful... what do you think the hippest and most versatile neutral wall color is right now? Soft gray?
Natalie — realistic-looking faux bricks were covered earlier this year in The New York Times. Check the article for some resources.
Any other advice for Natalie?
