a couple suggestions...but keep in mind i have never been on anyone's decorating committee....

grout colored caulk on the tiled wall and mortar colored caulk against the brick

or quarter round stained to match the flooring

latex based grouts that match all grout colors are available at big bozx stores and local tile stores. they come in a caulking tube and get applied just as cauling would. there.... problem solved

color rite inc makes grout matching caulk in 140 different colors. Mail order from on line. Mighty fine folks there.
