Good Questions: Window Treatment for Arched Window?

I need window treatment advice! This is a spare room in our house, which we have plans to repurpose and decorate. We pretty much have everything figured out, except what to do with that arch window!!! Here's the problem: the room is south facing, and in the summer the sun comes in and makes the room unbearably hot! We would like to be able to use that room more, but that window needs better insulation before that can happen. I've looked into custom blinds, but they are way out of our price range. We also would like to keep a privacy option available (open during the day, closed at night) for the large window, as it faces the street. I'm completely stumped on how to solve this! Please help! Thanks, Laura
