Make a painted brick exterior have a more natural look

We are remodeling a house that is 1/3 siding and 2/3 brick. The brick used to be natural red when it was built, but the whole house was painted light taupe many years ago. We are remodeling and want to give the bricks a more natural brick look. We don't want the red brick back, but would like a more natural looking brick color (varying neutral colors like in natural stone). We feel this would give definition and contrast to the painted siding and make the house more interesting. Is there a product that can give a natural look to painted brick? We'd love to replace it with stone; but it is cost prohibitive. We have attached a file that shows brick colors similar to what we like, although we are open to other ideas.
