A lot of that is the right kind of sunlight.
Then its enhanced by warm tones either with a photo filter or something similar.

I also think so: maybe the golden effect is only the sun light...maybe through a "golden" tend or something else...but in many pics the "gold" is not natural in my opionion...maybe a reflector, but what I mean is that it is not possibile to have a golden effect with the only use o flashes...is it wrong?

Maybe with a golden gel, using strobes. Then you can also enhance it with split toning in lightroom or color balance in Ps..................

I have nothing useful to add, but that first photo in the kitchen is terrible!

second image at least; (i couldn't see the bottom ones & the first just looks warm)

take a paint brush - set it to 100% soft edges > pick an orange/yellow color

create new layer > paint desired area > set blending options to soft light > adjust opacity

> use an eraser brush (100% soft edges > preferably a big one > and erase out as you see desired..)
