Painting Vaulted Tray Ceiling

Have a vaulted tray ceiling where the walls, vaulted tray and flat ceiling are separated by crown molding. Can't decide whether to paint the walls one color and the vault and ceiling another color OR paint the walls and vault the same color and the ceiling a different color?

Can you attach a photo of the room?

Is this a bedroom, living room or other? Would be helpful to see pix of the ceiling configuration, but you can search the box above for tray ceiling trim under Photos to see the way others have treated a similar issue.

See attached pics. Vault starts at 8 feet; ceiling is 11+ feet. Border at top of wall below molding is only where wallpaper was removed.

Here are some interesting takes on your dilemma - classical, eclectic, traditional and tropical. If you search the box above under Photos for vaulted tray bedroom, you'll see more... Does seem that unity of color is the standard, but you can see that is doesn't have to be boring. You might consider replacing the old wallpaper border with a paintable anaglypta border for some pattern and texture without the expense of additional molding. You won't see much on Houzz about it, but it could be a nice filler for that gap. Post your outcome here on this thread.
