Please help us decide on an exterior color. We don't like the red very much. The brick (circa 1955) is going to stay, although we are somewhat tempted to paint it. Any color advice would be extremely appreciated!

From here it looks like your brick has a tint of pink in it. Try uploading a photo of the entire front of your home in the Benjamin Moore paint visualizer and check out a few colors for your siding only. I would leave the brick unpainted. Check out the following to start for your siding:
Berkshire Beige AC-2 Paint
Greenbrier beige HC-79
Or even Ballet White, here it is on the exterior of this home too
Ballet White OC-9 Paint

You're right - it's almost a salmon tint. I like the grays a lot. Would you do ballet white on the trim then?

I originally was thinking ballet white on your siding if you didn't like the other siding colors and then paint your trim the medium gray as you see on the inspiration pic labeled Kara Weik above. The gray trim from the inspiration pic is "BM Attitude Gray" and would tie in your roof and the ballet white would lighten up the siding. The brick would be dark enough to ground your house. Try it on the visualizer. You can do as many as you like, they are free and it's fun too:)

It also help you to narrow your choices so you get down to just what you like. With the salmon in your brick you will have to be careful which beige tones you select. You will want something with the greenish undertones in your beiges and grays.
