Pop-ing up my ceiling

Currently I have an 8ft ceiling in my master beroom. To create the feeling of more height/space I want to pop-up the ceiling in the center of the room 9-12" up in height. So the perimeter of the ceiling next to the walls will be maintained at 8ft, but about 1ft in from the walls the celing would raise up.
Can anyone point me in the direction for how to modify my ceiling joist/framing to accomplish this? Are there some pre-fabed braces that help you accomplish this?

Your roof pitch will determine how far out from the wall you can begin and it would certainly be an advantage to know the ceiling and roof framing members size and direction, purlin rafters,etc.
