Because the lighting indoors (if it's normal bulbs) is yellow/orange compared to daylight (which is much bluer)

Auto white balance often doesn't deal with this well, by far the best way to ahcieve natural colour is to set a custom white balance, which is quick and easy and in the manual. You just take a picture of something white or mid grey, tell the camera to use that as the white balance and away you go.

It may be some of the presets will get you closer but a custom balance is comfortably the best
