I found some drapes at BedBath&Beyond that are translucent. They allow light in but prevent seeing in from the outside. They are working very well for me. Sliding doors are such a challenge. I'll be looking forward to other suggestions.

Ripplefold sheers would look great and still give you the light you need . It traverses really well and comes down easy for cleaning.

You could do a solar shade and they come in different levels of opacity.

When I work with clients who also want a combination of privacy and light, I find that canvas window treatments tend to be a good choice. I found this drapery from west elm. I think the pattern makes it really fun and eye-catching, without being overwhelming.

If you want to filter light during the day, another option is to put some sheer panels underneath your decorative panels. You can open and close both, so that the sheer panels can filter light during the day and the decorative panels can keep out even more light when you need it. Hope this helps!

Hopefully that is not a sliding glass door above a stairwell!

No it is not sliding doors. Just two large windows. Another thing is that this part is part of my living room. We just enter in to living room area and the kitchen is on the left side. Down is the basement and other part of the house. Annyway, this is chalenfging design. I want to thank you for your comments. I consider all of them and I come up with some idea. How about something like cofe curtains?

I would use an up down shade made with solar shade fabric. This will give you a balance between light, filtered light, and privacy. The shade is mounted on the sill and pulls up.

Consider a panel track system. The panels are only 10-18" wide and could stack totally off the left side of the window. They are available with screen fabrics, woven wood fabrics, and even plantation shutter style panels.
