Absolutely the bulbs that produce 'natural light' like the Reveal ones that give you acurate color when looking at fabrics! As far as paint, I would go with a 'whiteish' color that would reflect the light and not absorb it. I love a cottage white which has a tint of yellow sunshine [to me it does], however, my younger son works at a Sherwin Williams and he would probably choose something else, LOL, mom vs. the professional.
I also like the skylight/sunlight tubes, if that is a possibility I say get one! or would one use that if they were in a basement setting and it could run through the wall near the top??
