You can fairly easily change a grout color if you go from light to darker. You basically just paint it on. It's more like a stain than paint. Here's one option.

Since the brown is also a dark color it might work but you'll need to test a small inconspicuous spot to see if she's OK with the result. No way a lighter color will work over a dark color. This is stain it's not paint.
