Yulia - I had a similar situation with a previous apartment of mine. The apartment was a relatively new build (late 90's) but I really liked the "Manhattan Loft" look of exposed brick, so went about investigating how to strip back a couple of the internal walls.
In the end I chickened out, partially because the process sounded quite messy and involved, but also because I figured I was trying to make the apartment look like something it wasn't, e.g. a warehouse conversion.
You therefore might want to consider whether your exposed brick wall (or fake wall) will be in keeping with the rest of your apartment.
