Would you recommend hanging drapes from the moulding, or just above the window?

Moulding height is 8'6", ceiling is 9'

You will need to hang them just outside of the window frame so they do not get hung up in the shutters. I am not sure this would work because the right window is so close to the corner of the wall.

Do you really need drapes since shutters allow you to have privacy. Also the window is very close to the wall on right side which could be difficult to hang drapes. May block too much light.

I would hang them up just above the window even though a lot of people suggest up near the ceiling. Yes, it makes the windows look larger when they are closed, but when open, it looks odd. However, in your case, you have huge beautiful windows, you don't need to be trying to make them look bigger, they already are!

You may need to experiment with covering the windows with the drapes or putting them outside as kklinton suggested. Perhaps only using a half of a drape in the one in the corner.
