There are various coatings that can be applied to compliment the natural cedar colors. There are also stains that are similiar in color to the cedar. A waterbased waterseal won't change the color any BUT it does a poor job of long term protection. Most any coating you use will need to be refreshed every so often. I'd suggest going to your local paint store and discussing the options with them.
