How many pot lights and what size to effectively light my space?

How many potlights would I need to effectively light a living room that is 12' by 15'? I'm working on my electrical rough in and want to make sure I run what I need to run. I plan on hooking them all up to a dimmer, and am going with lights that have an edison style socket so I can get some decent LEDs in there.

I should probably also mention that the cielings are about 92". I was thinking 6" cans but want to make sure they aren't too big for the space. I'd probably be putting in a couple of smaller 4" or 5" cans directly above the home theatre.
