Privacy for Ground Floor Windows?

Privacy for Ground Floor Windows?

Q: My boyfriend and I just moved into a new apartment on the ground floor, and our bedroom windows face the sidewalk. As you can see in the picture, we tried putting up bamboo blinds, but they were too see-through. Our bedroom is very small, and the bleak wall and windows look so depressing! Help! What can I do to brighten the space while maintaining some privacy?
