The mix of flash and ambient light is exactly the prob, that only goes away, when you either
(1) convert to b&w
(2) use a color filter for your flash that tones it down to incasdescent light
(3) flood the room with enough flashlight to drown the ambient light out.
For me it feels funny to go to b&w, but converting some ig the portraits I made, it is even more shocking to go back to the color-version. It all looks so "overcolored"
Option (2) is a bit problematic when you want to use your onboard flash, because than you have to build some filter of your own: a.f.a.i.k. there are no color-filters for onboard flash...
(3) has to be done carefully not to totally erase the natural room feeling
