So trying to decide on paint Poggenpohl plusmodo kitchen ... The photo was my Insperation..the sketchup is my plan...looking to make a dramatic celiling /soffit ... Witch one should be light or dark? The soffit is fairly low to define the space and feeds into the entryway. I was thinking light soffit dark ceiling , but would that make it feel deeper or more compressed?

It looks like your ceiling is high. If so, I think you definitely can put a darker color on the ceiling. It will be dramatic. There is no rule that the ceiling must be light.

The second picture threw me. Is the ceiling coved? If so, I feel pconfident darker would work.
