I think trying to bring the outside in or the inside out brings very unique challenges for an area in which most folks do not use often.

I could understand creating that spa-like feel, get-away oasis, but it would not justify the added expense if this section of space will be used for less than 5%-10% of the time. The illustrated photo (photo 10) seems to add just the right balance where it shows a "green house" wall with plants plus it won't affect one's privacy.

Again, it is finding that difficult balance between privacy and intimacy & the outside world that will bring unique challenges. And as one pointed out, not everyone sits on 10 acres of property.

I'm not usually a fan of peel-and-stick anything, but I've used an adhesive free plastic film that looks like rice paper and it turned out nice for my rental (on the bottom half of a sash window) and as a temporary solution in our guest bath which won't be remodeled for several years.

My ensuite window's view while I'm sitting in my freestanding bath (please excuse my feet, this photo wasn't taken intending for Houzz). All looked so serene until I stand up and see all my neighours' houses. Considering putting up frosted film on lower half of the windows but it will lose a lot of sky when down here. Already have sheer blinds but it's still too see-through at night time. :(
