Lighting to accent second floor landing

Hi all,
Picture this. You are at the top of the stairs (the last two angle to the right). If you look at the ceiling, there are two cans to illuminate the stairs, another box ready for a light outside the small guest bathroom to the left of the cans and another box waiting for a ceiling fan in line with the two cans. It's a bit crowded up there. Guess the architect wanted plenty of light because they are all controlled (except for the ceiling fan) by one switch.
What type/style light fixture, flush, semi-flush, would go with the cans in such a small area? Small is key. Do I want to "hide" them or have them "blend" with the deco of nickel that I love? Light or no light for the ceiling fan?
Thanks so much. Terrible description, I know. All that's important ids there two cans, a ceiling fixture and a ceiling that all need to get along!
Oh, boy, one more light. At the top of the stairway, there' a small hallway also with, right, a box for a light!

Do you say the wall lamp?

I am having trouble picturing the setup. But if I understand the configuration you do not have room or a need for another fixture.

I know and I apologize. The two cans are in a line and the ceiling fan location is also in a line with them. The light outside the guest bath is to the left of the three.
