Painting Tray Ceiling; Mt Rushmore Rock for BR?

We just installed a tray ceiling in our 12x16 bedroom. It has 2 steps up & we r putting crown molding all around (3 levels). Our main wall color will be Benj. Moore Mt Rushmore Rock. I have no idea what to do for paint in the tray. Our contractor friend said do all white.The interior dec @ paint store said to go w/ a light version of the walls (Featherstone) on all the ceiling type surfaces. I am so confused & dont know what would look best. Im not sure I want to do the orig. ceiling part the light color. I thought it should be white. But my DH & I are not agreeing. Any help or ideas??
Also does anyone have the Mt Rushmore color in their house? Is it too dark for a bedroom? My furniture is light, comforter is mocha(see link below)& slate blue, floor is stained cherry. Or if anyone has any pics, send me a message & I will send u my email.
This is my comforter set

RE: Painting Tray Ceiling; Mt Rushmore Rock for BR?

I had a decorator advise me to go all white for our living room tray ceiling, everything above the wall - white. It currently has a lighter color of wall paint on the ceiling like part right above wall, the exact wall color on the inner side and the lighter color again on the ceiling. Sorry my terminology is not awesome. I felt like the stripe feel is very trendy and if isn't already dated feeling, will be soon. So after he unsolicitedly confirmed my feeling I decided all white. It's being painted this weekend. I can post a pic when it's done if you are interested. Here is the before, it's a dark rainy day so its kinda crappy photo.
