Playroom light ideas

Our playroom is in the middle of the house (terraced) so doesn't get any natural light, we have recently decorated in there and walls are a lovely light off white/v pale grey colour. I'd like to change the current light fitting to something more appropriate to a playroom (currently a black chandelier type thing). We need as much light as possible so I think this discounts any fabric shades. Has anyone seen anything suitable?
TIA.

This Ikea one looks good, is light and comes in two sizes.

We have this in our playroom. It doesn't seem to turn the walls as yellowy as I'd expected but you may notice it more if you have nice colour walls.
I've seen some glow in the dark planets which I'm considering getting to hang around the sun, but think its a waste of the glow in the dark to hang them in a room used only in daytime hmm

Yorky - that is perfect for ds's bedroom! Thank you.

this is also v cool - looking for something similar with space rockets to go with space theme wall stickers for when our extension is done and we have a boys' room and a girls' room

Have a look at Habitat, particularly their Kuro and Shiro shades (Shiro available in three colours):
