+1 Painting depend on a myriad of individual choices.

+1 Paint color is design choice, and is easy to change.
I prefer bright white to make rooms feel bigger. Some want black ceiling with glitter and sparkly buttons glued to recreate night sky. Some want bluish white to counteract soft yellow tones from old lamp fixtures. Blood red ceiling will make room feel warmer when hit lots of natural light in sub zero weather.
I suggest pick anything SWMBO desires. :)

+1 Painting is young mans sport.
Here in Arizona, smooth ceilings and textured walls are extremely popular. Textures use a lot more paint when applied with brush/roller .vs. spraying. If more than one room find it easier on this old man to hire a crew to spray every thing; despite having the equipment to DIY.

IMHO Always put flat paint on ceiling unless you want strong reflected light in room.
Nothing worse than a room with shiny wood floors, shiny ceiling paint, and lots of natural light from windows. It feels like an oven on warm summer day.

Bold color accent walls are current design trend. Color has to match room decor, or it looks very wrong.
IMHO will be replaced with something new by next generation. Just like those popular flower wall papers in 60-70’s, or the poor man crown molding wall paper borders common in 90’s. :-)

Best Luck.
