They are Valspar paints. On one end of the wall it is pretty noticeable that there are two different colors but at the other end you barely can tell due to the light. I just love how the blue walls look with the wood furniture and cabinets. Here are a couple pics of the walls and new kitchen cabinets. I think in my pics that the colors look a bit lighter than they are. First one is the big wall with the darker color. Second pic shows the new kitchen cabinets. We are planning on putting in some kind of backsplash between the counter top and the upper cabinets but we haven't quite picked something for that area out yet. Third pic is the corner where you can see the two different colors pretty well.
