Instead of insulating the exterior of the brick chimney, we were actually advised to fill the interior cavity with loose fill insulation. I reckon this serves a similar purposes as the exterior insulation suggested in the previous post, but I see 2 advantages:

-exterior esthetics  remain unaffected

-there is a bedroom located on the other side of the inner wall of the brick chimney. Filling the chimney with insulation should better address the cold wall of that bedroom.
