How can I make this look like stone?

Hello there. We are building a new home here in Texas. As you can see, the home is Tuscan in style with lots of stone on the front elevation. The chimney was originally brick similar to the adjacent wall but it had white mortar and it just didn't look good at all so we had it entirely smeared with tan mortar. This was better, however, it just doesn't look right us.

Do you know of anything that can be appplied to make the chimney match the rest of the stone? Can you apply cultured stone on top of brick? My builder mentioned something called Decopierre which looks interesting if go to their website. Should we just leave it alone?

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks
