Color Crush: Benjamin Moore’s Wrought Iron

July 10, 2018

If you are searching for a rich, warm black that adds drama, then Wrought Iron 2124-10 is the perfect choice for you. You will absolutely love this color!  :



Benjamin Moore’s Wrought Iron is a black/gray paint color that is less harsh than black. Many think of this color as a black, but  I think it can also fit in the category of charcoal gray:

It is a deep dark gray with a softness and warmth to it. When compared to other blacks it is noticeably lighter and more gray:



I wrote here how popular black paint is and Wrought Iron is one of the most popular door and exterior trim colors right now:

I love this color for exterior shutters and doors and interior doors. Actually, Wrought Iron looks amazing on cabinetry as well!:

See the difference in color with the black countertop? The wrought Iron is softer and less harsh. Love the backsplash too- so pretty!

This is a beautiful dark wall color paired with natural wood, (and stained trim):

It’s the perfect alternative to the traditional black.  How about experimenting by painting a small table sitting useless in storage right now? I think I am going to paint this cute little side table in Wrought Iron:

I will show you the after look when complete. Remember- black goes with everything!

Have a great summer week everyone!
