Hello and thanks for helping me.The rooms face south with lots of natural sunlight. I do not know if cool or warm colors look best when natural sunlight is shining in. Also, what materials and colors are best for flooring and cabinetry because streaming sunlight shows dust and finger prints much more than indirect or bulb lighting. ( I think the rich dark cabinetry would show smudges and dust in the sunlight.) Thank you for your help.

Stay away from dark flooring like the plague. It is horrible in regular room light and 100% worse in sunlight.

Thank you . Do you know if warm neutral colored paint is better in direct sun or cooler neutral paint colors are better. Do the greys or taupes look better with lots of direct sunlight.

Everyone seems to adore Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter, perhaps you could get a sample jar and try that one.
