We are looking at a home that is for sale, and basement has several brick arches. We like the idea of them, even though they are low. We would want to repaint them. Grey? Want a cool vintage look, as we love castles, vintage items etc. Better color? Also what color for walls/ceiling. Better way to do ceiling other than tiles?

RE: Brick?

No need to paint the brick. Red brick was also used in castle basements. You can embellish to the extreme with faux or real brick slices or stone. Cosy or macabre.
