Since the Graceland estate is so extensive and a real gem to see in person, I will break the home down into segments. The photos that you see will be from it's original days when Elvis was alive to the current state of the house on the tour. The second floor is considered private because that's where the family bedrooms are located. Elvis rarely invited friends upstairs into his room. He would entertain downstairs. Once his death occurred, they closed access to the public off from the upstairs to preserve his memory. Here is the floor plans of the first floor of Graceland.
Let's start with the first floor entrance, parents bedroom and living room.
Elvis' parents had a bedroom right behind the living room. They also had a personal bathroom.
Complete with poodle wall paper...
The entrance to Graceland is very grand with a large staircase and chandelier.
And of course the staircase leads upstairs to the private area of Graceland. His parents bedroom, bathroom and living room are all to the right side of the staircase. There is also a little hallway that leads down to their room. All inside the home is a very popular for the time mirrored glass with design. It makes taking photos in Graceland very hard because your reflection is there. You can see some of the glass in the above photos.
The next rooms on the Graceland tour will be the Dining Room and Kitchen. Stay tuned for those!
