March & White- Mansion Global Designer's Corner

Designing a Media Room

It’s about more than just seating and screens

Think Outside the Box

“We are seeing a trend toward media rooms that incorporate bar elements as well, which make the space more social and interactive, as well as functional.

We tend to design spaces that don’t typically look like media rooms. Seating should be seriously comfortable yet elegant.

"We love spaces that create mood and ambience. We mix up the lighting with picture lights above art, wall sconces, and most importantly, low-level floor lighting for wayfinding.

"We also always work with a specialist A/V consultant to include the best sound system into the design of the room. We try to eliminate any visual clutter and always look to incorporate clean, built-in solutions where possible.”

Bi-Coastal Design Duo on Why London, New York and Los Angeles Are Safe Bets.

Elliot March and James White say craftsmanship is key for a luxury home anywhere in the world.

Architects and designers Elliot March and James White established their design house March & White in London in 2010, beginning with the interiors of luxury yachts.

They later expanded into designing some of London’s elite private clubs, including The Arts Club and Devonshire Club, and have marked their first foray into New York real estate with 125 Greenwich Street, a building by Rafael Viñoly. The duo designed the building’s interiors, including the amenities space on the top three floors. They now have offices in New York City and Los Angeles.

March & White also worked on the Los Angeles home of reality TV judge and producer Simon Cowell.

We caught up with the duo, both 39, to discuss what international homebuyers now want from their home amenities, the future of London and Los Angeles real estate and more.
