The small globe fixtures that are perfect for lighting closets are the least expensive type of lighting and can be purchased for as little as $10 These are not powerful but they serve the purpose of providing light in a closet just fine. If your closet is not wired with a light switch there are battery powered versions of these lights available.
If you have a nice plant in the room try placing a small lamp near it and watch how the leaves cast interesting shadows on the walls. Lampshades too can add to the mood as they cast soft and diffused light. Sometimes the unique shape and patterns on the lamps and their shades elevate the lamps themselves from a functional purpose to an aesthetic statement.
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.
A floor lamp with an up light can also be placed in the corner of the room to highlight a ceiling detail. If you have painting or pictures on the walls use spotlights to focus on them.
