I rather like the bold black myself, it looks especially good against the brick corner. Theres so much light throughout and it appears that you like B & W - any reason not to bring in more black ? Weightier picture frames, Lamp shades, a black and silver fixture over your sofa area, black nightstands ? - and then add changeable color to each room as desired. The spring green is great with it and the mirror and silver pots are beautiful ! Those little perfectly shaped touches of green brings so much life - more greenery in other rooms !

go to design seeds look for color comb. it has all the colors in you home. don't change the the stairs or the brick. maybe the walls color is to stark. soften with a light honey beige

Minimalist: If you want the stairs to kind of disappear/float paint the black parts the same color as the main color in the floor.

Industrial chic: I like the idea of white for the base with the black spindles and wood handrail.

Traditional: You do have a pretty all white theme going, except for the brick of course, so painting the black all white would work also.

I would not touch the handrail, might be high maintenance to paint it, and it looks great and all the wood treads and floors look fab.

I agree with rawketgrl. Or you could even paint the base white and paint the spindles the lovely bright green you are using as an accent for an unexpected pop.
