I just don't see curtains on those windows. The stairs complicate full length drapes from top to floor, and separate drapes on the uppers and lowers would look odd. It looks like there is some depth between the actual window and the actual inside wall. This "cove" could be offset with a different paint color on window inset. If others seeing in is a concern, the windows could be covered with rice paper, which would still allow the light, and provide some privacy. If the windows don't need to be opened in the warm months, a frame with an interesting pattern of squares or diamond shapes could be made, and that backed with rice or other paper and inset against the windows. Or it could be installed at the front of the inset, with light behind. Sort of a stained glass look, except a geometric pattern out of thin wood strips and paper, either against the window itself or in line with the inside wall. Or such a framed piece could cover both windows and hang on the inside wall spanning them. Along the same vein, some kind of grille with or without a colored backing. The final thought that came to me was a roll-up canvas that spanned both top windows, and when unrolled is a piece of art. My mind's eye saw something like a cornice on top spanning both windows, under which the roll-up canvas would reside when rolled up. Unfortunately, that would leave some kind of string dangling down unless the roll-up was electric.

Sorry, I don't like the wrinkled Linen look in clothing or anything else. I'll pass on wrinkled sheets and duvets.
