AVOID THIS COLOUR AT ALL COSTS

The colour to avoid over the com­ing year is one called Neon Slime Lime, ac­cord­ing to a global panel of de­sign­ers asked to iden­tify 2016’s sin­gle “most un­fash­ion­able and ‘off-trend’ colour.” The gar­ish, “retina-sear­ing” shade of flu­o­res­cent green is the land­slide choice of a panel of 270 fab­ric de­sign­ers, drawn from the cus­tom fab­ric and wall­pa­per site of Spoon­flower (www.spoon­flower.com). The de­sign­ers, from over 15 coun­tries, say Neon Slime Lime is this year’s colour to shun for dé­cor, de­sign, fash­ion and ... any­thing else.

LAST DAYS FOR LOUNGE

VIC­TO­RIA (CP) — The Ben­gal Lounge at the Fair­mont Em­press Ho­tel, which takes its in­spi­ra­tion from the late 1800s when Queen Vic­to­ria reigned as the Em­press of In­dia, closes for good April 30. Ren­o­va­tions have been un­der­way at the 108-year-old Em­press for months. Of­fi­cials say while the fu­ture of the room is still un­de­cided, it will con­tinue to be an in­te­gral space within the ho­tel.
