If you don't like paint, stain it! Just a surface cleaning is needed. The uneven colors of the bricks will show through the stain giving it a a "Modern Deconstructed", look. I would use a light to medium brown stain.

I did a concrete floor years ago. Used a water based glossy clear polyurethane and had the paint store tint it with several colors, teal, turquoise, and black. I added a purple car finish called Pearls for a metallic look. I rolled the coating on with a low fluff paint roller and let each coat dry for 24 hours in between. I did three coats to build up the color. I also left areas of the floor unground, destroyed other parts, painted fish, seaweed, etc. for an underwater look. The colors tend to seperate in the polyurethane which is what I wanted. Rolling it on with the paint roller leaves bubbles, again an effect that was desireable for me. The whole floor was deconstructed. It was incredibly beautiful with a realistic look that some people were hesitant to walk on for fear of drowning. :)

Is it wallpaper in the bathroom or a painting on the wall? If it is wallpaper where can I get it?

With the bottom heat from the radiator and light it sounds ideal for plants. Tall plants, trailing vines, etc. to partially block light but such a pleasure to have during the cold dreary months especially.
