Color Spotlight: Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron

Paint Color Spotlight: Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron. THIS is the deep beautiful charcoal gray almost black you've been searching for!

Hi Remodelaholics, it’s Cyndy from The Creativity Exchange back with my monthly paint color post.  Last month, I talked about 2016 trends in paint colors and if you happened to miss that post, you can find it here.

Today, I wanted to do another Color Spotlight and highlight one of the most popular and versatile interior door and cabinet colors out there.  Wrought Iron from Benjamin Moore is a workhorse of a color because there is nothing that this color can’t do.  While it’s really popular right now for interior doors and cabinets, it’s also a near perfect exterior trim/accent color and it even works well on a wall too.

Before I show you what all this color can do, I’m sharing an image below that compares Wrought Iron to a traditional Benjamin Moore black.  You can really see why Wrought Iron is such an amazing color because it’s a slightly muted version of black:

Blacks can be harsh but as you can see above, Wrought Iron is a black/brown/gray color that is less harsh than black and the brown in the base adds a little warmth.  In fact, Wrought Iron can look like a very dark brown in spaces with a lot of natural light.  The gray in the base helps to diffuse and balance the black and the warmth.

Let me show you what Wrought Iron can do and why it’s become such a popular paint color.
