Fashion designer Sue Wong lists restoration in Los Feliz

Fashion designer Sue Wong crafts dresses that recall the glitz and glamour of Old Hollywood, and her latest creation in Los Feliz matches the same romantic style. The 1920s villa, which she restored and transformed over the past year, just listed for $6.2 million.

Found near the entrance to Griffith Park, the Spanish-style hacienda isn’t the first Los Feliz home Wong has given a makeover. In 2004, she bought a 10,000-square-foot mansion known as the Cedars, and during a three-year-restoration, brought the estate back to its Golden Age of Hollywood glory.

Wong said she wants her homes to be “temples of healing and renewal, in which the inhabitants can restore themselves in a beautiful environment for the healing of body, mind and spirit.” She designed the Los Feliz listing as a turnkey property, and it boasts custom Andalusian furniture from the kitchenware to the bedding.

Historic Oil Glut Amassed in the Pandemic Almost Gone

(Bloomberg) — The unprecedented oil inventory glut that amassed during the coronavirus pandemic is almost gone, underpinning a price recovery that’s rescuing producers but vexing consumers.Barely a fifth of the surplus that flooded into the storage tanks of developed economies when oil demand crashed last year remained as of February, according to the International Energy Agency. Since then, the lingering remnants have been whittled away as supplies hoarded at sea plunge and a key depot in South Africa is depleted.The re-balancing comes as OPEC and its allies keep vast swathes of production off-line and a tentative economic recovery rekindles global fuel demand. It’s propping international crude prices near $67 a barrel, a boon for producers yet an increasing concern for motorists and governments wary of inflation.“Commercial oil inventories across the OECD are already back down to their five-year average,” said
