Chiaroscuro. It’s a wonderfully romantic and rhythmic word. In translation, chiaroscuro is Italian for “light and shade”. It was a technique that was emblematic of the works created by the great Renaissance master painters Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt of the 15th and 16th century.
Now you might wonder what chiaroscuro has to do with blinds. Well, there is a simple parallel.
