Which food to wooden ceiling?

We bought a house and we love its wooden ceiling in the living room. It has carpet floor but we want to replace it for parquet... Any ideas? Should we go for dark or light color?

I like the way the carpet looks.

But I live in a home with a cedar ceiling and I have wood floors (natural red oak) -- and I'm very happy with the look.

I wouldn't use parquet as the design could look too busy with the ceiling. My choice would be darker wood 'planks' run the same way as the ceiling boards.

Sorry, I meant wooden planks. In German when you talk about "Parkett" it means wood in general...

My first thought would be to go very light. Especially if the ceiling changes to an obvious orange colour in various light. If the ceiling and floors are dark they may compete for attention and give the room a low ceiling feel. The artist rendering in your pictures look very beautiful with white floors.
