Color for Stair Rail and Banister?

Good Questions

Q: I'd like to be able to spruce up the banister of our main stairwell with something a little more dramatic. I thought about re-painting the entire thing white, but also like the idea of two-tones (white spindles with a dark handrail). We can't afford to change the beige carpet at this time and I'm not sure what would look best with our light wood floors. Any suggestions?
