I do not think you can go with a larger newel post. However I like the idea of the stained treads + handrail + cap on the newel post. Keep the newel post + tread + stringer (trim) white. This will look sharp!

Love love love this simple farmhouse entryway! Beautiful
Detailed finish carpentry consists of wainscoting along the walls as well as floor boards and crown molding in this entryway.
entry...paint white and add trim to create board and batten look....all the way up the stairs and the second story of entry...
Nice color on stamped concrete. Hedge is too formal, but love the natural looking trellis and flowering shrubs.
