Nina Magon is a multi-award winning interior designer and TV personality renowned for her signature refined modern aesthetic that perfectly balances bold high design with glamorous appeal. As Creative Director of Contour Interior Design with locations in Houston, TX and Miami, FL, Nina seeks to first create a vision and then execute it for each client, designing one-of-a-kind environments, each tailored to the client’s unique taste, with an emphasis on skillfully executed, flawless detail. Contour is lauded in its industry for its integration of design innovation, construction expertise, and business acumen. Her lavish residential and commercial interiors have won her national acclaim as she was named one of the top designers in the country by NBC. In addition to her many accolades, she was deemed “The Design Industry’s Next It Girl” by POPSUGAR and was called “The Breakout Star” by RUE Magazine.


In 2016, she was selected to be one of the 25 participants nationwide by Housing Works and Elle Decor Magazine to participate in Design On A Dime Miami.


Born in Saskatchewan, Canada, from a family of Indian descent, Nina along with her family relocated to Houston when she was thirteen. Nina received a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Finance from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, with post-graduate studies in Architecture and Design at The Art Institute of Houston. Her first speculative house, which Nina designed from concept through construction in Houston’s upscale neighborhood of West University in 2006, sold for close to a million dollars prior to completion.


In 2013, Nina was hand-picked by Oprah Winfrey’s interior designer, Nate Berkus, to appear on NBC’s American Dream Builders in which 12 of the most notable, respected and established designers and builders from around the country competed to win the title of the first American Dream Builder. Nina was a semi-finalist in this national competition and was continuously praised for her high level of taste and aesthetics. She also landed a Lowe’s Home Improvement commercial that aired during the season finale.
