living/dining room decorative ceiling

Hi everyone,
I am trying to figure out what to do with the ceiling of my living/dining room in my new build. We have 9' ceilings and I want to do something special in there but I need help. We will have a coffered ceiling in the family room. I was thinking two separate trays but I dont know if I want to define the space that much. Anyone have any ideas or pictures that would be nice.
here is the floorplan

Have you checked out Houzz? Great ideas there!

Plaster Mouldings used as cornice and/or on the ceiling can define and beautify spaces where otherwise ceiling height limits headroom.

Look into barrel vault ceilings.

thanks for all the suggestions.
joyce6333-I have been looking through houzz but havent found anything yet. Most pictures I saw dont show ceilings.
worthy-that is beautiful but a little too "girly" for my husbands taste. I will explore the general idea though.
abdrury-that is also beautiful but wouldnt fit in with the rest of the house.
I will keep looking at pictures and hope something pops out at me.
