Warm or Cool White in Living/Dining Room?

Good Questions

Q: I am thinking about painting our living/dining area white, but I don't know if I should go with a cool or warm white. The house faces west but the downstairs only has windows on the east, and it doesn't get much light. It is one big open space. Would it be too white?
