Taniya Nayak comes from a fun-loving, creative family from India. Growing up in Boston, she watched her talented architect father design exquisite homes, hotels and shopping malls, which sparked her interest in interior design.

Shortly after attending the Boston Architectural College for her master's in interior design, she landed her first TV gig on ABC Family's Knock First, working for Scout Productions (creators of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy). Taniya was one of four designers/hosts of the hit show, geared toward hip, ambitious teens. She then joined HGTV, helping homeowners get innovative with the things they already have in their homes on the edgy series FreeStyle.

Besides hosting and designing on television, Taniya is president and founder of design firm Design Digs, where she adds a fresh, clean look to both commercial and residential spaces. A large part of her company focuses on helping people get their tired homes ready for top-dollar sales through staging and mild renovations. Thus her connection with the Washington, D.C., edition of Designed to Sell.
