How to lighten wall paint color...HELP!!

I posted about paint combonations a few years ago, and it's just not working. I NEED HELP!!!

I am a bad mama. It took us 2 or 3 years to come up with a paint scheme. It consists of my hubby's favorite color and mine also. It's just too dark for us. The color was the same as the pillows in the link below. The Dark rich blue, and the dark cranberry. We used both colors on a wall, then, we'd switch the opposite color. The colors are semi-gloss, I think Glidden.

I guess it really bugged me when a friend said it reminded her of a cruise ship colors, lol.

Anyways, we want to change everything!! I would like to have ALL sandy tan colored walls. Inspired by someone here who gave a link to a blog. And my hubby approves!!! He said I change my mind too much, lol.
