stupid question about painting brick....

1970's orangish/reddish brick home. Ugly as sin, basically. I would like to paint, hubby wants to "stain" some of the bricks 2 or 3 different colors to give it some interest and variety.
Any opinions or advice?

Painting is forever, as is stain, but painting is a maintanence issue, while stain is a one time deal. The cost reflects that, of course.

If you plan on dying in the house, do what works for you, but if you plan on selling the home, painting is probably a poor choice.
