    when something turns into a lighter colour gradually, it is called 'fading'.
    If you hang your clothes out in the bright sun, they will fade.
    The sun had faded the bright blue walls.


    dim, pale,washed-out are the other words that you can use .

    I painted the wall dark blue, but on the top it dimmed a bit.
