I live in a rental property where some of the rooms (living room, and bedroom) are situated right next to the street.
I would like to block the view from the street so people looking in can't easily see the insides of my apartment - it's ok if people looking into the room from the street you can see the outline/shadow of people who are inside. I have some pull-down blinds (similar to http://made2style.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/dsc_03271.jpg) which can block the view but these also prevent the sunlight from coming into the rooms. Ideally I could block the view but allow some sunlight to still pass through.
Any suggestions on how to go about doing this? As I am just renting I'm looking for a simple solution - perhaps some kind of screen which I can temporarily prop up against the window?
