About half the time I paint the ceiling the same color as the walls. There are times when a room needs to be enveloped in the same color and the ceiling lines need to go away and not be displayed. More and more I prefer this seamless look. I repainted my studio a few weeks ago Decorators White and covered all surfaces in it. What is more perfect than an Interior Design office than Decorator's White? I knew it needed to be white - when selecting for other people I can't have my walls casting any color on my choices. The following choices will work well on the ceiling alone or on the ceiling and the walls.
BENJAMIN MOORE CLOUD WHITE 967
I used this in my list of favorite interior paint colors, but it is equally as great on a ceiling. How could a color called Cloud White not be great on the ceiling?

BENJAMIN MOORE CALM OC-22
A bluish-white with a hint of lavender to make it feel not so cold.
BENJAMIN MOORE WINTER WHITE OC-21
For when you want a pure white on the blue side.
FARROW & BALL WIMBORNE WHITE No. 239
A very "white" white. This has just a touch of cream it in to not feel too stark.
BENJAMIN MOORE ALABSTER OC-129
The slightest hint of pink makes this a universally flattering tone.
