Meet Amanda, Founder + Editor

Welcome to The Staged Life! My name is Amanda Layton. In addition to being a wife, mom of two (boys) and registered nurse – I own and operate my own home staging and design company, Layton Staging and Redesign. I have always had a love for interiors and am so thankful that my husband encouraged me to pull up my big girl pants and do something with it!

I started this blog to better explain what home staging is and can be. My main goal is for buyers to fall in love with a house, but with this blog I also get to be a great source for those of you staging your own home (whether it be to sell, or simple live in)! There is no specific style that I stick with, I love to mix it up and against my husbands wishes change it often (hahaha sorry Honey)! If you came here for DIY advice though, I highly suggest you RUN!! LOL Sadly it’s not my strong suit. I do however have mad bargain hunting skills and you will find this in my Shop! Not only will you find deals, but some of my favorite items to decorate and stage with!

Why The Staged Life?? You are probably like, “well duh, you do home staging.” Haha Yes that was the initial inspiration, but I am also a believer that your home sets the stage for your LIFE. Your homes’ style represents you as a person, that’s why no one house is ALIKE! That’s what I truly love about interior decorating and design.

I hope that by reading my blog and following along with me you are inspired to stage your home in a way that truly represents YOU and the home you want to have.
