Studying the sketch plan of your space you sent we observe that although the space has open plan concept the kitchen forms a distinctive area.

The position of the kitchen allows selection of different curtain for the kitchen window.

Considering the color scheme of the space elements (walls - sofa - armchairs - cupboards) we recommend choosing shades of chocolate or sand or silver gray for the windows of the living room. The choice of the shades depends on your preference in colors and tones, e.g. sand color is light, while chocolate color is dark. You can also differentiate in transparency of curtain that affects the tone.

For the kitchen window we propose venetians in cherry wood to achieve a single unit with the cabinets.
