Our l staircase into the living room is BLAH, DULL, when my friend took these pics she gave me a couple ideas. .i was not crazy about them. There is another set of stairs from the kitchen. I just need some. "Pop" of color or something.

I see some red curtains, and some  large contemporary walls. Maybe bring out the red more in art work, add some metal with mirror, more color to the walls. There's some idea with shape,and contemporay design:

You call that dull?! That is so beautiful!

Perhaps change that bluish picture into something even bigger. And change the drapes. The rest can stay.

It just looks so dull to me, I've started changing the back side of the stairs, they go into the kitchen. My color choices sometimes are not the best.

 I've seen quite  a few staircase transformations on pinterest that I really like....painting the stairs, handrailing black, and the spindles white, or somevariation thereof.  I think your best bet in actually changing the stairs is addressing the railing. I think they are contributing the most to the "blah" you're feeling. I would stain them dark, or paint them black or whitel.  I would also hand your drapes from the top of the upper window, and personally I think billowy white would be nice for those.  I agree the blue picture on the wall is nice but doesn't belong there.  It's not big enough.  Either add another just above it or replace it with a larger one.  Your home is so pretty and open feeling....just what I love!

You are extremely fortunate to have such a large home while so many would dream of having such a beautiful staircase as yours. Just be grateful for what you have. It's perfect just the way it is.

I think if you stained the hand rail and spindles a deeper color that would really help. Maybe get some art work with pops of red and that would tie the red in the curtains in and give you a pop of color.
