    How would you tie in exposed brick wall to mate with the ceiling? What
    about baseboard? Would you leave a 3" or so section of the top of the
    wall in the original plaster?

    I am renovating the condo and both the living room and bedroom have
    one wall (interior) with brick. Exposed brick will be around 20% of
    the total wall space. I love exposed brick in the apartment; this is
    the real red brick from the 1920s.

    Anyway, exposed brick all the way to ceiling or leave the last several
    inches covered? What are your thoughts on this?

    Install studs on 16" centers and put R-13 insulation between them. Cover
    with wallboard. Best for energy efficiency.
