Painting question-- two colors, uneven surfaces -- paint up or down?

I'm painting a wall dark blue and re-doing the ceiling in white. The place where wall and ceiling meet is very uneven, and I'd like a nice clean line between the two. This seems to be a pretty common problem, and the standard solution seems to be creating a neat line somewhere other than the actual wall-ceiling joint. But some say paint the wall color up a bit onto the ceiling and some say paint the ceiling color down a bit onto the wall. Given the colors I'm dealing with, which will look better?

Painting my way to Marrakesh.

I love the walls in this photograph. Moroccan, textured, uneven. I'm moving into a new place soon. I don't know much about painting. What do I need to do to make my walls look like this?

How to paint a moving water effect on wall?

I want to paint one of the walls in my bedroom so that it gives the impression of flowing or moving water. The idea is to give a kind of mountain stream effect by: *putting river rocks along the edge of the wall by the floor *by making a small floor indoor water fountain with the same rocks for the middle of the wall. How can I get this effect on the wall? [more inside]
