that would look with 8' ceilings, even with soffits strategically

What it comes down to is "standard construction grade" or something more elegant and "uplifting." For that I recommend higher ceilings.

But I also think it is a good point that a variety of ceiling heights is wonderful. Easier in a two storey house than in a flat.
