Even a tiny strip of crown molding gives a room architectural interest while undoubtedly hiding flaws in the transition from the wall to the ceiling. Painting the ceiling and the crown molding the same color gives also makes a space with lower ceilings feel taller and more grand.
I'm almost always in favor of painting moldings and casings the same color as walls. I'm also a fan of matte paint in general, but especially when all the decorative trim is painted in. Don't worry; matte paint is just as wipeable as eggshell but doesn't have that rental-apartment sheen so many of us are familiar with.
