Meet our design team:
Jody Wallace - Company Founder

Jody has always loved everything to do with designing and decorating homes, from laying out the floor plans to picking colors, fabrics and furniture styles. She has been working in design for over 20 years.

Before moving to Portland in 2010, Jody lived all over the country, moving from southern California to the gulf coast of Florida, to the suburbs of Chicago.  Along the way, Jody has gained a wealth of experience, working with some very talented people and taking in new ideas from different regions across the country.

In 2022 Jody decided to retire and kept Greylyn Wayne a family business by handing off the company to her daughter and son-in-law. She now spends her free time traveling, playing with her granddaughter, and using her lifetime of design knowledge to continue doing what she loves.

Looking for a change which still allowed her to be creative, in 2020 Tori interned with an interior designer based in Los Angeles. She enjoyed the new challenges and different creative components to the position. When she moved to Washington in 2021, she joined the Greylyn Wayne team to broaden her experience in this area.
