I can not stand the white or light gray bricks either. YUCK!!! Talk about boring, bland and just ugh. My parents bought a house when I was a kid that they just sold that had icky light almost white grey brick. All monotone. Your choice of trim colors: White, Grey or Black. woo-hoo...... Even adding lots of color in flowers can't help. To make it worse the people that built it had used a whole hedge of shrubs that were a really really pale green almost greyish color.

Our last house we built had a reddish brick color. BUT it had other colors mixed in w/ black, a light light gray almost white, a lighter reddish color AND the bricks were textured w/ indentions and rises so they had character and it did not look like just "red brick".

^ Ouch, that black-and-white exterior would sorely be missing color!

Yes, having splashes of other colors mixed in w/ all that red helps from the monotone appearance.
