To paint or not to paint the window returns in a warm onyx color?

We are building a new modern house with windows toward an amazing view and with all natural desert surroundings. We have high ceilings and the windows are set on the wall about 10 inches deep. We are planning to not put any trim around the windows to keep it minimalist. Because of the light shining on the window-returns at some times of the day we are thinking about painting the returns of the windows in a warm onyx color to eliminate the light shining so we can appreciate the view better. This color is also used for the tall posts in our patio, we can see them from the other window wall. Is it painting the window returns a good idea?
