I painted my sons ceiling bright yellow back in the early 80's against the advice of just about everyone. It will bring the ceiling down, they said. He was 3, he loved it.

I find anything other than white very depressing unless the ceilings are at least 12 foot. And for heaven's sake don't do cream! It always ends up looking like years of nicotine stain, or just dirty.

I'm personally against the fad of using a lightened version of your wall colour - again, depressing. I find it feels 'dingy' even when it looks ok.

I expect I'd have liked a yellow ceiling when I was three, but you're a lot further from ceiling height, then! Good on you for doing what your son wanted bigredkate. It's only paint, you can go over it anytime.
