I don't have a digital camera but will see if a friend might help out. Of course, if you ever make it out to CA, you can stop by.
Anyone can have a pleated curtain made and hung on a traverse rod to cover their screen. The size and cost is usually much smaller than a whole wall treatment. Finding the right fabric is key. You will be looking at it whenever the screen is covered. We were lucky to find fabric containing the colors of our quarry tile floor, pine wall wainscote, oak cabinetry and loveseat fabric color all included in an abstract design.
We're very proud of our music/ht room which has three sides of the listening area lined with floor plants, vining plants growing down from window ledges (these wrap around and also help hide the cables) and large hanging plants in all four corners. Obviously, the plants are used for reflection/absorption room treatments. It was a music listening room first.
The curtain/drape covered screen fills the wall space between the left and right Gallo Nucleus Reference main speakers. The screen is high enough (50" from bottom) to allow for the center Gallo Solo speaker on its stand.
Unfortunately there is a handmade oak wooden spiral staircase on one side of the room just to the side of and before the couch (actually two seat reclining loveseat with head/neck support). Although very handsome and a piece of functional art, it prevents me from using the whole width of the room to center the speakers and the couch. These are somewhat offset.
The screen, however is centered and its center (with which the projector lines up) is just about in front of the couch's left seat. Obviously the other seat is well within the primary viewing space. Anyway this rambling is probably more than you want to know.

Back in the early days, there were just HD demo loops, no programming. Now HD 3D and 4k.
