Maroon

Brendan and other people kept referring to our kitchen colour as maroon, and I kept saying it was burgundy, thinking they were suffering from some strange form of colour blindness. I was wrong (very hard words for me to utter, these!). I always thought that maroon meant chestnut. After all, that's what marron means in French. Not so in English, apparently! Maroon is actually a burgundy-like colour. Put in the word "maroon" in a Google search for images - the little sample above is the first thing you'll see (followed closely by the pop band Maroon 5, scary or what?) Exactly the colour of our kitchen!
