How To Dress These Unique Windows?

Good Questions

Q - Built in the 1900s, my home's living / bedroom has a huge, unique window, which looks awesome without any curtains but the sun sets on this side of my flat I need some protection against sun / heat.

I have a greyish-silverish curtain that works well, however I'm not 100% convienced I applied it the right way (my walls are 15 ft, the window is 11x11), should I attach it to the wall a little higher, or should I have a different color? My walls are happy-yellow, and main colors of the room are dark brown, gray and aqua. Would it look appropriate if I had the curtain just above the window, or shoud I have separate pieces for each window? Any thoughts?

Editor - It looks like each individual window pane needs its own solar shade (something that rolls down from a top mount within the frame of each window like blinds) but a soft, light-diffusing material. Regarding the curtains, we saw an episode of Dear Genevieve on HGTV where she covered a window very similar to this one by hanging curtains floor to ceiling, wall to wall, creating a hide - and - seek fabric wall that could reveal and conceal windows according to the need. But 15' of fabric might be a little too dramatic...

Anyone have ideas?
