Design ideas for large wall with open staircase

last year

Hi All! I am hoping to get some ideas for a large wall that goes up our stairs and overlooks the main living space. We are going to replace the current 80s staircase with a sleek, matte black iron rail (simple and streamlined) and will be painting the walls a warm white, and will be replacing the outdated lights with more recessed ones (new flooring will be going in as well). I am wondering if a statement chandelier would work in the middle (circled in red) or if it would look out of place just floating on its own up there? The wall is so large that I don’t really know what to do with it (concern is I don’t want it to look too busy since its open to main living space) - my thoughts were maybe statement chandelier or some sort of artwork? Our walls are textured, unfortunately, but we do plan to remove the popcorn ceiling, at least. Would appreciate any ideas:)
