Do I chose and paint first, or put my new flooring in first?

I am renovating my kitchen, dining area, living room, and foyer, that are all connected by vaulted ceiling. There are half walls separating the living room from kitchen/dining area/foyer. I have already installed my quartz counter top. It has been suggested to choose and paint first, then put the new flooring in. The living room will be carpet, the the rest will be luxury vinyl plank flooring. I thought we should put the flooring in first, then choose the paint because there are so many paint colours to choose from. But my husband wants to paint first. HELP!
