Wall Sconces- Wall sconces provide great ambient lighting, especially larger or multiple arm scones. As mentioned above, sconces and a large overhead fixture are the perfect combination.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
That being said, remember that overhead lighting is great so long as it is accompanied by additional task lighting such as wall sconces or reading lamps. This is to avoid casting shadows, creating glare, and causing eyestrain from insufficient lighting at eye level.
