Mixing window treatments: is it okay to mix plantation shutters on some windows, drapes on others?

We are building a lake home. It is farmhouse/cottage style. Standing in the master bedroom: Wall directly ahead is the lake front wall with a glass door, a picture window and a window. This will not get as much sun as there is a large covered porch outside. Wall to the right has two windows on either side of the bed. This will get a lot of direct afternoon sun. I would really love to install plantation shutters on the bed side windows. I will have them in all the bedrooms and they fit the style of the home. Since I don't want to cover up the view, I'm stuck on the lake view windows. Plantation shutters would block the view and also not work due to the big picture window. I was thinking of fabric panels that I could close at night or Hunter Douglas screen roller shades that you can still see the view if they are down, but pretty much disappear when open. There is room on either side of the door and window for the panels to hang when open. I'm leaning towards the drapery panels. Is it okay to mix different window treatments in a room?
