I've posted this on the lighting forum as well, but wondered how you choose an entire house's paint colors without the benefit of testing patches with lights in the rooms. Some of our rooms get very little light, especially our foyer, unfortunately, so I'm nervous to choose paint colors until lights are in. But, the builder doesn't put the lights in until the tail end of the project. I'm overwhelmed and have no idea what to do. thanks.

Just do white and count on repainting.

You could use multiple portable light stands/ work lights positioned at the approximate location of various light fixtures to illuminate a wall/ room.
