I am looking for some species of carnivorous plant that does well in lower light conditions. I would like to place a plant in my living room, but my apartment is east facing and has a wide balcony between the living room wall and the exterior of the balcony. I have several nepenthes, cephalotus, dionaea, and sarracenia in a dedicated grow area, but would like something for more decorative purposes. I've heard some drosera and utricularia do well in such conditions. I would appreciate any advice from anyone willing to help.

An Australian lance leaved sundew would work fine!

Almost no direct sun in this area. It stays moderately bright, but the patio is too deep to allow any direct sun into the interior space.

Ouch, that's not much light. As Joshuamarshall792 recommends the Australian lance leaf sundew aka Drosera adelae. I doubt much else would work, and I'm not too sure about that, but its worth a try. I'd probably go with the "giant" form but your tastes may differ.
