Was Elvis really going to redo the Jungle Room?

Post by Tigurinn »

Apparently Elvis was going to re-decorate the den, but I find it highly doubtful - can someone shed a light on it, please?

I doubt it, but maybe Ginger wanted to make changes?

This is a panoramic 360° view of the Jungle Room at Elvis Presley's Graceland. The Jungle Room has become famous over the years due to the eccentric design with a Polynesian influence, reminiscent of Elvis' favorite vacation spot - Hawaii. The detailed wooden carvings in the furniture and the green shag carpet of the 1970's makes this an Elvis fan favorite.

Yes they were. Regardless of whether Elvis had married Ginger or not, he had plans to redecorate the whole house.
His plans also included dismissing most of those in his entourage.

That's a fact Billy and Jo Smith can verify.

HAPPIES.
