We can't see what you see and since there isn't a definitive rule I feel it's difficult to answer your question. Could you download a photo? Many options will create many results and you want a certain feeling - traditional, funky, open ...whatever the feeling will determine the design answer.

Its new construction. Vaulted ceiling painted ceiling white. Stacked stone FP at one end which goes to ceiling. Walls are Summer Suede (neutral beige tone) and trim which includes 6" crown moulding is a
cream color. I'm having open trusses with black bolts/hardware installed in ceiling. Total of 4 trusses with a
center beam. Room is 15x23'. I considered rustic beams attached to ceiling but decided on white frame trusses bc I like the light airy feeling they represent Problem is rather to paint them ceiling white, cream as trim color, or choose another shade of white different from ceiling and trim?? I can't DL photo. Thanks so much.

Forgot to mention that ceilings are 14' high at peak. Also lots of natural light from 4 windows and one 5' French Door. Thanks again!!
