I'm aware of where the lights are but am wondering what kind of fixtures, rigs, diffusion, flags you would use to light this.

 

I'm aiming to shoot the same thing inside a house and my main concern is what they used for that large top light.

You'll see the clues in the lights being reflected in the balloons. There's a soft top light for a start, they may have flagged off light hitting the back wall, although a very small part of the wall lighting is from the practical table lamp.  .

What light and diffusion would you use though?? I am thinking of rigging up a grid with cat poles.

I suspect your problem is they could've been shooting in a studio, so they had the height for what looks like a diffusion frame or similar on the top light. Locations often have have limited headroom.
