relaxing bedroom colors

I am thinking of painting bedroom ceiling a very light, pale sky blue. Walls will be white

Workable color scheme or not?

General rule of thumb is ceiling is a lighter color than the walls but it's your house.

As an example, one might paint the walls a shade of blue and then the ceiling with a lighter shade of blue.

Also with white walls the bedrm will be brighter at night. I prefer to sleep in a dark room but I know that isn't a concern for everyone.

While ceilings being lighter than the walls is the norm, it isn't like there is a set of paint color rules AND it isn't a big deal to change the colors if you decide later that it doesn't work for you.
