Foyer Lighting - Help Requested

[Reposting to Lighting Forum]

I have probably looked online at over 1000 light fixtures so far, trying to select lighting for my kitchen, bathroom and foyer. I have managed to narrow it down some, would appreciate some insight/opinions to help me make my final decision for the foyer.
Right now, the entry and living areas read 'traditional' because of the color choice and trimwork. Aesthetically, this works for me - but I don't want the entire space once fully decorated to simply read traditional - so I am trying to incorporate a bit of modern without clashing with what is already there. Here are some links to pictures of the foyer and surrounding rooms as well as to pictures of lights I am considering.

Thanks for your help!

RE: Foyer Lighting - Help Requested

Most of these fixtures don't move me much one way or the other. They strike me as serviceable, if a bit fussy. But that's strictly my opinion. And don't forget, I'm the guy who advocates surface mount linear fluorescents in kitchens because they do such a great job of lighting up the room without costing an arm and a leg for either installation or operation. :)

Without seeing the room where you're proposing to install these, it's impossible to judge how well they would work. Besides, style is really a very individual matter. I think you're the best person to judge what works best in your home.

If you don't feel comfortable making that decision, maybe it would put your mind at ease to invest some of your lighting budget in a lighting designer's help.
