Agree - you should do something, or you will spend the whole time in the house wishing you had. With masking tape on the carpet following the profile of the of the treads and risers paint the walls in whatever colour you can get away with, if you must match the existing wall colour then OK, if you don't have to and wan to keep painting to a minimum, then with masking tape again strike a line down the wall and paint the triangular section of the wall. Then shop around for some good quality vinyl/leather or coloured duck/duct tape and apply to the carpet edge horizontally on the treads and vertically on the risers. Choose a colour you like but be as bold as you can, I believe if you are trying to hide something make it stand out (sounds ridiculous I know) Whatever you do don't 'curtain it off' or you'll lose all the volume of the stairway and I'm guessing space in in short supply.
