I respectfully disagree that only one side should be painted. i think you should paint both sides a tone that matches the general style of the house. i know you said the kitchen is a light gray, but what is the decor of your house? i.e. if you live by the coastline you could do a new england feel and a navy blue or even a lighter shade of blue. if you live in a city and want to go with something more metropolitan and classical i actually really like vertical black and white stripes (maybe 5 inch width). if solid color for the whole stairwell or the stripes are too much, you might consider installing simple paneling from the stair to the railing and only painting above the paneling. i think with some wall decor, mirror, pictures etc, nothing is too overwhelming for the space, but get some light in there!
