This is the original tv room at Graceland back in the mid 60's before Elvis gave it a complete makeover. Although I do like his makeover with the gold and blue color scheme, I really do like this look he had going at the time as well. It's more elegant and classy looking.(y)

I actually like this look as well...it's much more calming. I always thought the blue and yellow was so distracting that it would be difficult to concentrate on a movie.:lol::lol:

Has this photo degraded over time to give everything this kind of orange glow look? Or was this mood lighting? I know the couch was something like a cream white-yet looks almost orange.

I don't think it would be the colors that would be so bad as it would be the 3 tv screens showing 3 different shows at once.:lol:

While on the subject about the tv room, there was a show that used to come on MTV called Cribs and there was this rapper who had a room with 3 tv monitors built into a wall side by side and a pool table. It was too obvious where he got that look from.:hmm:

Old color photos do degrade and this photo does seem to have an overall orange tint to it as I see it. The couch is a white color-but in this photo there is a tint to it. It is not a major point. Does anyone else notice this or is it just me?

Mine has an orange glow to it as well. It almost has the coloring of the ice-cream "push-ups" that my kids ate when they were little.:D

If its not an old picture which has degraded-it must be some colored mood light because that is the way it looks to me.
It reminds me of a sunset in the house.

To me it looks as if the lighting in the room was meant to hae a hazy appearance which makes the pic look off a little. Plus most cameras weren't as good back then as there are today whereas a pic made by a modern digital camera can look crystal clear.

The whole photo has an orange cast to it to me. I don't know what does this. I've seen some that are too yellow but this one is definitely orange.

I was thinking the same thing, this does not look like a photo that is correct at all... possibly altered or aged and withered in coloring...
Some of Elvis' decorating touches were a little bizzare, but then I have been told mine are as well... so I'm in good company.
