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!


  1. Wrought Iron for front doors — I have been contemplating this! I have a lannon stone house that needs a new color for the shutters and front door. I wanted black, but the house across the street has black and didn’t know it was better to be the same or different. Their black is a very dark black. So, maybe I’ll try the door before moving on the shutters. Right now it’s forest green so it will be a big improvement!

    • Hi Molly,

      I wouldn’t think it matters what the person has across the street. You paint it what color you love! It is more time consuming, but so worth it to paint a poster board in the color you are sampling, 2 coats, and live with day and night to see if it looks good in the sun and at night. Good luck!

  2. Kelly, I have a small bedroom (12×12) with 1 large window, northern exposure. My trim is SW Maison Blanche. What do you think of painting 3 walls BM Glacier White and the 4th wall a blue (something like SW 6250 Granite Peak) that’s in the Magnolia Home Kasuri Mosaic rug which I plan to use? The dark wall would have a beige headboard on it. I probably asked a longer question than I’m supposed to. Thank you in advance!

    • Hi Terry,

      Sorry for the delayed response, I moved last week.

      I put all three colors together and they look really nice! No undertones clashing, very pretty combo. I especially love Granite Peak! But I really do love all blues! 🙂

  3. Kelly, I don’t think I ever seen this post. Besides being stuck and not deciding a bedroom color yet, I have a cabinet that needs some depth to it. I recently used an antique white chalk paint on it to lessen the peachy-yellow stain (from the 90’s). This color is a viable option.

    • You are really having a hard time choosing a paint color for your bedroom Teena. I thought you were going with the Collingwood? Yes, Wrought Iron is a beautiful color with lots of depth, I think it would look great painted in this color!
