I know the photo is terrible BUT...I will attempt to take a batter photo.
The sofa is a grey shimmer chenille (the sofa is to have 3 inch legs attached), the chairs are a wingback-like black leather chairs. The flooring is a refinished hardwood-dark brown. There is a fresh air fireplace finished in a traditional wood surround painted white.
The walls are greys, with the fireplace wall being slightly darker grey. White trim.

What I would like is a drapes blinds combination.
*the rug is going to go it's off-white not what I want
*the coffee table is going as well along with the side tray table.
*the blinds are Hunter Douglas same age of the house and have been damaged in a roof leak, need replacing, I like the privacy of the blinds but the ability to let light through.
The sitting room is at the front of the house (obvs. Sorry), and has a cathedral ceiling all the way to the second floor.
It is sunken down by a step from the main floor.
Thanks for all of your comments in advance.

Ikea has lots of great ideas. This is what we used in our house.

Have you thought about plantation shutters? Expensive and some people don't like the bar feeling but you would have light and privacy control.

Thank you for your comments, like the idea of ikea and I like the style of your window treatments David.
I hadn't thought of plantation shutters, my thought would be that the shutters are more traditional look than what I am going for. But I'll look at some examples of the use of shutters, keep an open mind.
I'm non-committal about all window coverings, it's terrible really. But I'll bravely make the first step!
