John,

I would check the Shine settings for the washed out floor and wall, as well as the Shine setting for the dark wall.

Mike, i have done all the usual checks - shine for both walls are set the same, i have played with light intensity and all to no avail.

John,
It is because of the light cans inside the cabinets. They create a shadow on the cabinet wall and reflect on the other wall creating the wash out. Below is how I would light this. Less is more in lighting.

John,
Remove the washed out wall, move your overhead lights back and up the intensity a bit. Set all the light cans to 10%.
