Good lighting can make or break a room and there are many resources to consult when coming up with a lighting plan for your space in terms of look and function. I don’t think it’s as complicated as it sounds, but then when I’m doing my favorite thing of looking into people’s houses when it’s dark, I’ll see people going about their evening with the overhead light on, so maybe it is?
Here’s another prime example of how to mix different types of lighting (directional vs. ambient): You’ll notice that the floor lamp in the room above falls under the "ambient" category because the fabric lampshade would delicately diffuse light around the space. This lights a room more thoroughly, as opposed to the task lamp on the desk. The hard metal shade means no light can escape except for in the direction it’s pointing (hence, directional lighting). These are really great lamp types for reading, working, doing anything hobby-ish. The light is strong and bright right where you need it (and basically nowhere else). You’ll want to be sure this type of lamp is low enough (or can be directed down) that it doesn’t blind you.
