Elvis Presley was totally unique, no one sounded like him, no one dressed like him and if you’ve been to Graceland, you know its design is totally one-of-a-kind. He turned a Southern Colonial mansion into a home like only the king could, complete with countless mirrors, a stylish TV room that bears his own personal motto and a mind-blowing billiards room. Graceland is a mansion on a 13.8-acre estate in Memphis, Tennessee that was owned by Elvis Presley. It currently serves as a museum. It was opened to the public on June 7, 1982. Graceland is the second most-visited house in America with over 650,000 visitors a year; second only to the White House. So why do so many flock to this grandiose 23 room mansion? To see the beautifully exotic and unique stylings that was considered one of the king’s artistic masterpieces. But he didn’t do it alone, he had the help of a professional Interior Designer by the name of Bill Eubanks. It was well thought out, full of grandeur and rigorously perfect color scheming. With a sprawling 17,522 square feet of space to work with, the home has 23 rooms including eight bedrooms and bathrooms. Some interesting items in the home include a 15′ long sofa, a full bathroom done in pink, black marble flooring and rounded curio cabinets. And it seems as if Elvis favored “white” in design with a pop of color or “accent” color as there are white elements to be seen everywhere. For example, the 15′ long sofa was all in white, as was Elvis’ parents bedroom: the walls, carpet, dresser, and queen size bed all in bright white. The Entrance Hall contains a white staircase leading to the second floor of the house with a wall of reflective mirrors. The TV room in the basement is where Elvis often watched three television sets at once, and was within close reach of a wet bar. The TV room’s west wall is painted with Elvis’ 1970s logo of a lightning bolt and cloud with the initials TCB, for ‘taking care of business in a flash’. The south wall has three built-in television sets, a stereo, and cabinets for Elvis’ record collection. Opposite of the TV room is the billiard room; Elvis, an avid billiards player, bought the pool table in 1960 and had the walls and ceiling covered with 350–400 yards of pleated cotton fabric after the two basement rooms were remodeled in 1974. To this day, the pool table sports a tear in one of the corners, reportedly the result of a failed trick shot by one of Elvis’ friends. Graceland truly is a marked piece of interior design history. It’s worth a look if you ever get the chance or privilege to go there and see for yourself a remarkable display of interior design and visually stunning rooms.
