Ideas for Decorating a HUGE Blank Wall?

Good Questions

Q: I have a high, huge blank wall above the stairs. By high I mean really high. And by huge I mean really huge! The wall itself measures approximately 16'x10'. It will be difficult to paint, though I intend to do so. I have textured walls, and painting a design would involve scaffolding (and neither heights nor painted chevrons are my thing, so I think that's out). The staircase is the first thing you see as you enter! FYI, I do have plans for refinishing the oak stair railings to a brown/black and changing the floors out to a dark wood. Any ideas for what to do with this huge, huge wall?
