Navigating between Views

I have created a very simple project to demonstrate a problem I have been grappling with for a few days. The full code is available to download at s!AuEmZJuOJ6_bgP9Jspx53kOML0Xang

Apologies for not posting the code but for what ever reason it site kept refusing to display large sections of the code.

Within a MainWindow I have 4 Buttons, 2 Buttons change the MainWindow view between OneView or TwoView. The reaming 2 buttons are meant to change the View within the view selected by the previous two buttons i.e. within OneView or TwoView. I say meant to because I cannot get this to work.
If I place two buttons within say OneView and bind them as I have buttons 3 and 4 then I can change the views within this view.
So I believe there is something about the Ancestry I am missing?

I would very much appreciate any assistance in resolving this issue.

    Hi,@BigH61 :

    Please change the sentence to this <ContentControl Grid.Column="1" Content="{Binding DataContext.SelectedColorViewModel,RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType=Window}}}"/> on OneView.
