Love for Elvis

My friend Katherine recently visited Memphis, Tennessee and just knew that I would want to see pictures of her visit to Graceland. What an awesome friend! I’ve never visited Elvis’s home, so I was pretty excited to see it vicariously through her. I never expected to love any of it – Elvis is not known for tasteful choices. But then I totally fell in love with this room (which I believe is his music room):

I don’t even know why. I don’t actually like heavy drapes or brass chandeliers or stained glass or grand pianos. But somehow all together it’s a fabulous time capsule of a space that I adore. I just made this picture the background wallpaper on my laptop. Go figure!
