Experimenting with the white balance

Recently I was in the Mortlock Building on North Terrace, looking at the wonderful old books.  I took the same photo twice - once with the white balance on auto:
Mortlock Building, auto white balance
and then with the white balance changed to Daylight:
Mortlock Building, Daylight white balance
The auto white balance made it look quite cold with a blueish cast, whereas the Daylight setting made it look warm and inviting, which is how it always seems to me.  I don't know which one is strictly accurate, but I like the warm Daylight one to express its genuine feeling for me.
