Chardonnay is a rich but subdued yellow that takes its name from the grapes used in making the famous wine. This versatile color anchors and adds cozy strength to whatever it adorns. Creamy with hints of hidden depths, this hue is delicious for fashion, but it displays its powers fully in decorating. Blouses and skirts in chardonnay add elegant panache to any wardrobe, as do coats and jackets in this hue. Add black shoes, a black handbag, and a black or cabernet hat for an untouchably stylish appearance. A sweater or tunic this color adds instant chic to weekend jeans or leggings. This color is also an excellent choice for decorating. It pairs well with other darker wine colors, creating a pulled-together look for any room, but especially living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms. This color is a great choice as an all-over neutral, including for sofas, upholstered chairs, pillows, throws, and blankets. Add pillows in this hue striped with richer tones such as deep brown. Try patterned wallpaper, perhaps in a luscious claret, for a bold statement, and add a sweetly patterned rug in this color and black. Chardonnay, as a color, is just as delicious, refreshing, welcoming, and cheering as is the eponymous wine. Embrace it as a neutral to anchor splashes of color and warm white. This hue is always in good taste.
