"Keep Warm Color" Oly default??

Is this wise, keeping an orange cast to photos taken with Auto WB indoors where there are incandescent lights? This is the default in the EM 10 and other Oly cameras.

Or would it better aesthetically to change the setting to "no" to get rid of the orange color cast?

To my eye images where the warm color is kept look warmer but other colors are muted and the image looks less natural.

With the option set to "off" the images look sharper but a bit blue.

A second question: if I want to get rid of the orange cast in my existing indoor images, during  post processing on my Mac, using iPhoto 9, can I select an image originally photographed with the warm color set to off, hence it will have no orange color cast, and hit "edit" then hir "adjust" thenhir  "copy" and then go to the orange photos and hit "paste'?

I hope this was clear. Thanks for any help,

Krugman
