Is it a privacy problem? We have side by side casement windows between cabinets in our kitchen and like the look.

Do you use the window at all?

Assuming that you want to be able to open the windows, I can think of a couple of ideas:

1) I've seen semi-transparent paper that can be applied to the glass. It would let in light, but you wouldn't see the brick wall.

2) You could mount small shades or blinds to each window that would swing out when you open the casement, but you could roll up whenever you wanted to look at the brick wall. I'm not certain where you could find something like that.

I have a setup similar to yours and install "top down/bottom up" blinds by Levlor. I love them.

A top down bottom up would be nice. You can maintain your privacy and still let light in. I'ld suggest the cordless, it's a much cleaner look. A silouette by Hunter Douglas mounted above the trim is another good option.You can maintain your view and privacy by day and get total privacy at night. It has a soft elegant look to it. No matter what you chose you will still have to contend with the crank handles. Looks like those are the type that collapse, which won't interfer as much. Both of these treatments are very light and easy to operate.
