My wife absolutely hates white ceilings so no ceilings in our house are white. In much of our house the walls and ceiling are the same color.

It is a personal choice.
If the stairway is dark then I would paint it white.
Also if it feels confining/cramped.

I almost always paint all ceilings white unless instructed otherwise by the customer. As noted above white ceilings help to illuminate the room.
