If you live in a flat with a window facing the other flat you will need to have blinds that will completely block out any view from the outside. However, if you are in a country house with the windows facing the open vastness of the countryside you may want to have a window treatment that will permit a lot of vision from inside as well as there will be very few instances of someone looking in from outside.
The best minimalist window treatment is no treatment at all! Unfortunately, not all of us live in an area where we feel comfortable bearing it all and we must provide some sort of boundaries to prevent our home lives from being public peek-shows. This can be done by utilizing untraditional materials such as colored glass, recycled plastics, or luxury textiles. Colorful panes can interact with the light, or a solid block of sheer fabric can produce a very understated window effect.
Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function.
