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.
