Lighting Suggestions for This Entry?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I am having the ceiling and lighting changed in my apartment foyer. I am having a problem with selecting lighting for the space. The current lighting (as seen in the photos) are basically consists of florescent bulbs in metal gutters — they have to go! Given that the space is so big and the ceiling so high (11½’), I am totally stumped at selecting lighting for the room. I would appreciate any suggestions the Apartment Therapy forum can provide. Of the 2 photos, view 1 is from the kitchen to the from door and view 2 is from the front door to the kitchen. I am desperate to find a solution given that the construction will start in a couple of weeks!
