Roll forward six months and it's time to actually make an IKEA run (it's 2.5 hours away so you tend to plan a whole trip for it) and buy my lights! Except when we get down there, I hate them. They are too big. Too clumsy. Too darn wrong. Argh.
Fortunately IKEA has a pretty darn good lighting selection and I found these that I liked just as much as the ones in my imagination.

The only issue we had was with the drywall cutout for the fixture. It was a wee bit too wide and showed a gap on the second light.

Now the lights are up and I can unpack at night! Hmmm, not sure that's really an improvement.
