What to do with tall windows over fireplace?

Have these great tall windows over our FP in fam rm - while I love the idea of the view, the windows are on the west elevation and the brightness is blinding. I have dark solar screens on the outside, but this still does not allow me to enjoy the windows uncovered, even when its raining. I paid lots of $ for this remote cellular shades, which broke within the yr ... plus I don't like the look of them .... any ideas appreciated .... would love to bring more outside in:)
