Helping someone understand that painting the ceiling and down the walls about 5 inches

I believe that if we paint the vaulted ceiling white and down the wall about 5 inches then putting a crown molding it will creat the illusion that the celing is lower than it is. From the floor up about eight feet will be painted a color. Any thoughts would be helpful.

Use a picture moulding not crown! And yes, I believe your idea will work.

Are you trying to make the ceiling lower or higher?
To make it lower - you paint the ceiling a darker colour and to make it higher, you paint the ceiling a lighter colour than the walls. Bringing the ceiling down a few inches also adds to the illusion of height.
