Natural Direct Sunlight. Natural light received from the Sun is the most obvious and healthy source of light we receive during daytime. Though the intensity and quantity of sunlight coming inside the space can be controlled using diffused glasses or curtains on windows. When the direct sunlight falls on the inside walls the color of the walls temporarily changes to a mixture of sunlight plus the original wall shade. This particular phenomenon can be use to our advantage. By finding out the wall that received direct sunlight and painting that wall with bright color a beautiful diffused and "reflected light" can be created absolutely free. This "reflected light" will help in creating an ambience in the living room. Also shadow patterns on this wall will add to some extra excitement if used creatively.
Consider pendant lighting. It works perfectly in high-ceilinged rooms; therefore if your living room has a high ceiling you should highly consider going for this lighting. The good thing with the lighting is that it brings the source of illumination closer to where it's required. At the same time it provides visual interest over your head.
Skylights. Skylights aid in bringing the daylight into your living room. If you need to light up an area that doesn't have a lot of ceiling space you should use tubular skylights. The good side with these fixtures is that they collect and channel daylight from a collector on the roof to a diffuser in the room's ceiling without the need of you installing a finished skylight.
Sconces or wall sconces if you prefer are a very popular lighting fixture with models designed for both indoor and outdoor use. Wall sconces generally don't jut out too far from a wall like wall lamps can and are usually fixed in a single position. They can be uplights or downlights and some designs can even be mounted in either position. This feature just adds to the sconce's versatility. Sconces work well in almost any room but are ideal for halls and entryways and can even work well in dining rooms.
