Window Treatments For This Modern House?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: My windows are a major feature of my modern house and I’d like them to look good and offer some level of privacy — in addition to being green and offering better insulation properties. There are so many windows! There is a radiator below the windows — so curtains are out, right? and then the low ceiling, beams, and several doors — french doors and patio — really complicate the matter. The windows are a major feature of the house and I’d like any window treatments to look good! Any ideas? Would it look bad to have inside mount shades and then a different style for the doors?

Editor: High quality, custom metal blinds have always been my first choice — they can be fully closed, fully opened or adjusted to deflect light — but I’m curious to see what others would suggest.
