Inside Out hosts Mike Pyle (L) and Carmen Sabatella (R) work together to radically transform homeowner's spaces — both inside and out.
Southern California home renovators Carmine Sabatella and Mike Pyle, stars of the new HGTV series Inside Out, begrudgingly agree on one thing: a beautifully updated home requires great design indoors and out.
Premiering Monday, April 26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the seven-episode series follows Carmine, a real estate agent and interior designer, and Mike, a landscape designer, as they each pitch their design plans to clients. The budget is set, so the guys must be persuasive to score a bigger chunk of the dollars to either max out the interiors or make the most of the outdoor spruce up.
More money for Carmine will mean clients get all they want and more for their home's interior, while extra cash for Mike will give the property wow-factor curb appeal and major outdoor living perks. No matter who gets the majority of the renovation budget, both the interior and exterior will get a stunning transformation.
"In my 20 years of experience, I think the most important element of any renovation is what happens on the inside," said Carmine.
"You've been living a lie for two decades," said Mike. "A home extends way beyond the walls. Curb appeal is THE most important thing!"
In the premiere episode, Carmine and Mike meet a newlywed couple who purchased a fixer upper that needs major interior work and a full outdoor refresh. Carmine suggests an interior redo with high-end finishes and all new flooring, while Mike suggests a total front and backyard makeover. Ultimately, the couple must decide which plan is the best investment to create the staycation-worthy home of their dreams.
