Motorized shades and color to high arched & low rectangular windows

THE PROBLEM: Second story arched windows of different sizes and spacing.

Just moved into a home in Northern New Mexico with stunning views, but no window treatments to help keep out the sun’s heat and intense morning light. Please know the windows are coated so that the IR/heat helps keep the home warm in winter. I am leaning towards motorized shades plus some flavor of drape to add color and help soften the room. Painting the walls is part of my plan. Possibly the ceiling too. I am fearful that shades + drapes + painted walls + painted ceiling may be too busy.

Recommendations appreciated. Thanks.
