What is our mission?

We believe every child should feel emotionally supported and encouraged through intentional interior design choices, involving both choice of products and layout.

Beautiful sensory-rich spaces that encourage movement and open-ended play will naturally meet and surpass your kids fundamental emotional. social and cognitive needs.

We hope your kids will love our stylish and sensory rich products!


As the Founder of Project Playroom and also CEO of Smart Playrooms, Karri Bowen-Poole has spent the last 10 years revolutionizing the way children learn and play with her innovative and educational playroom design services. After spending several years in the classroom teaching, as well as obtaining her Master Degree in Education, she decided to leave her teaching job to start designing playrooms like classrooms. Her understanding of child development  has led her to believe:

1) Excessive screen time interferes with the sensory needs of children, including movement and visual input.
2) Many toys are scripted and often limit the imagination of a child and therefore children outgrow toys quickly. 
3) It is challenging to find equipment and playroom products that are beautifully made and cohesive aesthetically with the rest of the home. 

Karri spent years sourcing playroom products for her discerning clients and is so happy to finally bring these same products she herself sourced to families throughout the US. 



Hi! I’m a mom of 3 based in New York. My passion has always been to revolutionize the way kids learn through play.

A seedling of an idea came to me one night, and 10 years later my vision has flourished unimaginably. I’ve had the opportunity to design hundreds of residential playrooms for families including Matt Groening, Rachel Fuda, Adam Ottovino,Nicky Hilton, Dylan Lauren, and Dan Girardi. I regularly receive inquiries from around the world and my work has been featured in a variety of magazines like House Beautiful, The Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, Elle Decor and The New York Times.

I take pride in customizing each room I design to fit the needs and interests of the children. Every child has different needs and deserves a space suited to them. My drive comes from knowing that I’m helping kids reach their full potential while also making my family proud. I created Project Playroom to give everyone access to the quality sensory and gross motor products I use in my Smart Playroom designs.

Light and Love,
Karri Bowen-Poole
