Can I add shades to an aluminum framed patio?

We're going to get our little sunroom converted from wood framing to aluminum. See for an idea. It would probably be something like the pictures at the bottom.

The one thing I'm hesitating about is how to add some shade for the summer. I know I can get solar screening but I don't want it dark even in the winter. Is it possible to hang those plastic (faux bamboo) Roman blinds from an aluminum frame?

Any other ideas?
