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, 405 Magazine + 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.

Meet the Design Team
Jamie Slothower, Assistant Designer
Jamie loves art, science, and psychology, finding Interior Design to be the perfect mix of all three. This led her to graduate from Oklahoma State University in 2020 with a degree in Interior Design & Sustainable Design.
After interning in the large scale commercial world, she was left missing the personal connection with clients and the ability to see projects through from beginning to end. Jamie was excited to move in a different direction when she got the opportunity to work with Layton Designs in a residential capacity. Meeting face-to-face with clients and having the privilege of being in their homes makes design so much more personal.
Jamie grew up in Oklahoma City where she currently lives with her Labradoodle, Reid. Although she is making a career out of interior spaces, Jamie typically prefers to be outdoors. Her favorite activities are hiking and running or really anything that doesn’t involve sitting still.
