Good Questions: Suggestions for this Window?

Hey-o, First and foremost, this room is a work in progress and I am not responsible for its current condition!! I need some help in deciding what to do with this lovely window in my office space. I'd love to leave it bare, however, it faces west and in the summertime the afternoon light is so intense that it makes looking at a computer screen impossible, not to mention the sauna-like conditions it creates. The window is about 7' x 5' and the area below the window is a working radiator. That terrible, ill-fitting, bamboo blind is making my eyes bleed. Please help! Thanks, Robin

This looks like an awesome opportunity! We can easily imagine this as a window seat/reading cove with the addition of a nice cushion, some pillows and some heavy curtains. We'd also suggest checking out this Roundup of Window Seats for inspirational images. This is a perfect project for DIY Month coming up in February! Who else has ideas for Robin's window?
