Wall lights or sconces
Sconces are a great way to add extra lighting on a wall while also adding ambiance to the room. They can be placed on a wall at a slant, perpendicular to the slope of the ceiling. Their placement will depend on what sort of look you want to achieve. They can be used to highlight something particular in your home, such as artwork.
Wall sconces that feature open shades allow light to filter through the shade and illuminate both the wall and the ceiling simultaneously. These types of wall lights are ideal for sloped ceilings, which can be difficult to light well because only a small portion of them is visible from below. Perforated shades add a touch of sparkle and glamour, making them an excellent option for dressing up your home’s interior decor.
They can also be used as ambient lighting in any room where you want a little extra illumination without compromising privacy or creating glare on surfaces like glass art pieces or paintings hanging on walls near windows. The one drawback is that they don’t provide much direct task lighting.
You may want to consider recessed lighting for your sloped ceiling.

Recessed lights are hidden from view, creating a dramatic effect that highlights specific areas of the room, such as a fireplace or focal point.
It’s important to take into consideration if you have any other lamps or fixtures that will need to be installed in this area of your house because they will affect where you place these new lights.
