Recessed lighting design

I have a couple weeks coming up when the SO will be out of the country. I want to make a few upgrades in the master bedroom to surprise her when she gets back. I am wondering what people think of this design. (the recessed lights would hopefully be on a dimmer)

Few questions: location of recessed lights good? too many/not enough? can size/wattage of lights? any other thoughts???

thanks all for your help!

I'm a fan of putting up cove molding near the ceiling in a trough configuration that hides the lighting, the light then washes across the ceiling from the top of the wall very softly and indirectly. No holes in the ceiling this way, and maintenance is not hard. Your lighting can be low voltage rope lighting, flo tubes, strips of incadescents, almost anything.

But really, this forum is not about architectural lighting, except in how it might relate to film and video production.
