hhein: I've seen photos where the homeowner has made custom rods with a curve using PVC pipe, the thick walled type. An elbow creates the corner so they can have drapes that meet in the middle when they want them closed.

Another option is the rods for patio curtains that hang from the ceiling.

hhein, inside mount roman shades or roller shades would be good as they reveal the wood trim. Since these are for the living room, it is alright to let the light come in a bit. These are easier to maintain as well.

I have a wall of windows and sliders which need replacing anyway, so I'm thinking about changing the layout at the same time. The contractors thought a week or two. I'm sure it depends on how many people are on the crew.
