I have to say that your room almost exactly mirrors my living room (some door locations are different, but basically the same). I have my TV on the same wall that you are planning on putting yours.
What I opted to do (speakers are actually on the way to me now via UPS), so to put a traditional Center speaker with 2 in wall speakers (I did this because of space limitations and there was no good place to put an in wall center channel). For my surrounds I went with 4 in ceiling speakers. I, like you, was considering mixing the wall and ceiling for the surrounds, but I thought not only would it look better, but I thought doing all ceiling for the surrounds would produce a better sound stage. I did go with in ceilings that I could "point" to my listening position for better sound staging, but i'm not hoping for much. Like you, this is just my living room, but I like the idea of just chilling out to watch a movie in the living room. I also have no room in my house for a dedicated theater, so this was a compromise for me, but one I think i'll be more than happy with.
In the end, just know that you are not alone in this very specific layout issue! I share it with you...LOL
