Amanda Layton, Owner
Amanda Layton is not just the Owner of Layton Designs, but a wife + mother to two boys here in Edmond, Oklahoma.
When her Nursing career collided with being a mother, she made the tough decision to taper her hours. Eventually, she left her career in Nursing permanently to pursue her passion for home interiors + design.
Amanda established Layton Designs in April of 2017 + has never looked back. She’s been featured in The Scout Guide Edmond, Like ToKnowIt, McGee & Co, RugsUSA + she’s brought home multiple Oklahoma Parade of Homes Awards – this is just the beginning of her list of accolades, a list she plans to continue to grow.
On a lighter note, Amanda is a lover of wine + friends that cook. She has a hard time turning down any chance to travel or shop for home decor. A bit of a chick flick connoisseur, Amanda loves an evening wrapped in a blanket with a fire blazing + tv remote in hand. She manages to run this business in between school dropoff, practice, tutors + more. It’s frankly amazing how much one woman can accomplish in a day given the opportunity.
Kara Dyer, Lead Stager
Kara was looking for a major at UCO that didn’t require a lot of math or science. She came across the Interior Design program and it quickly became something she was passionate about. Kara graduated from UCO in 2020 with a Bachelors in Interior Design.
Kara was blessed to come across an internship opportunity with Layton Designs that eventually turned into a full time position. Inspired by the foundation that Amanda has made for this business, Kara is excited for the opportunity to help Layton Designs continue to grow. She is now the Lead Stager, staging alongside Amanda on a daily basis.
Kara was born and raised in Oklahoma City, where she now lives with her husband. A kid at heart, she loves all things Disney. Kara loves sports and cheering on the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Oklahoma City Thunder. She is often complimented on her calm, patient and kind demeanor. The master organizer of the team, she perfectly rounds out this dynamic duo.
