There are many plants that do well in indirect light or light to medium shade. Annuals would include impatiens, fibrous rooted begonias, pink polka dot plant, coleus and caladium. Perennials would include hosta (available in many colors, leaf shapes, and sizes), ferns, lungwort, Solomon's Seal, tricyrtis, lamium, and ajuga. I hope this gives you a start.
