Hey! We’re Anne + Jodi!
We're expert educators and child development nerds! We have a combined 20+ years of experience with kiddos and master's degrees in Education. Our time in schools inspired an obsession with child development and a mastery of organizational systems and structures that specifically WORK for kiddos! Add in parenting four kids between us, an eye for design, and a love of beautiful, peaceful spaces ... and TA DA, grOH! was born.
We know how it feels to have play space-induced anxiety and not have the time to do anything about it! Our Solution: It's not just about organizing. It's not just about beautiful design. It's about a room that supports your whole child — their learning, their interests, their friendships, and their relationship with family!
We have created play spaces in our own homes that bring our entire households joy, and we want to share that feeling with as many families as possible. Everyone deserves a space that makes them happy!
We cannot wait to work with you and transform your playroom into a peaceful space the whole family loves!

grOH! Design Principles
Balanced Play Is How Children Achieve Balanced Learning
All children learn best through play, so we design spaces using our balanced play equation. Intentional layout and design of your space leads to varied types of play, which leads to well-rounded skill building.
Beauty + Kid-Friendly Systems Build Independence
The beautify and intentionality of the spaces where we play, learn and work directly impacts our time there. Both children and grown-ups thrive in beautiful, soothing spaces, well organized spaces. We create thoughtful designs and systems based on your families needs. All of our recommendations promote play, growth, independence, and relationship building.
Less Is More
Just as visual clutter can hinder an adult's work, it can hinder a child's play. By minimizing what is available to children at one time, and changing out toys and materials regularly, you build novelty and excitement around play in your home. The phrase "I'm Bored" disappears!
Whenever possible, we prioritize sourcing earth friendly products, including those made from recycled materials and environmentally conscious companies.
We strongly believe that toys and materials one family grows out of are exactly what another family needs. We partner with many local organizations to find new homes for our clients' unneeded items.
