The always fascinating blog “If Charlie Parker Were A Gunslinger……” publishes this fabulous picture of Elvis’ TV room circa the early-70’s and yes, I now have my color scheme for my home theatre. I’m guessing this is post-Priscilla and what we have is pure bachelor pad motif here.
Check out that black and gold color scheme! Revel in the shag carpet! Note the yellow brick road detail around the edge of the room and the “Taking Care of Business” lightning bolt on the wall! And pillows!!! Elvis, like yours truly, obviously loved loads of pillows and cushions for his lounging pleasure, after a hard day doing shitty movies!!! And who doesn’t like odd Monkey sculpture conversation pieces to help break the ice when you are introduced to the King of Rock’n’Roll??? Man, this is the most! Replace those old RCA’s with a monster flat screen and a Bose sound system and you transform your old Heartbreak Hotel decor into the Mansion on the Hill. Way to go, King!!!
