Stone House Revival Family Room and Sunroom
Are you a fan of DIY Network’s Stone House Revival?
If you’re new here, let me introduce myself. I am Denise Sabia and I am the design coordinator for DIY Network’s Stone House Revival.
The third episode of season 3 aired last night at 9pm on the DIY Network.
Did you watch last night’s episode?? What was your favorite part?
Here’s a little recap in case you missed it…
A family’s sunroom was transformed into a charming work space for both the husband and the wife.
With 2 fantastic custom builds by Jeff. These builds will hold office supplies for the family. Both mom and dad plan on sharing this work space. It opened up to a beautiful back yard, with windows on all threes sides of the room.
The homeowner’s sun-room was already covered in Blue Stone and they wanted to continue that into their family room. It’s a great look and its a stone that’s native to this area (Pennsylvania).
If you’re curious about how the rooms are put together here’s a little behind the scenes look at the design process.
We create a floor plan of the room, then play with different ways the furniture could be placed and make sure everything fits. Even colors are added to get the vibe of what the finished room might look like.
Who like the addition of the swings in the room? I know they’re not for everyone, but they added a fun feel to a family with 3 kids.
How do the built-ins develop?
First, we take photos of the existing room. Then we study them to see where improvements can be made.
Here’s the before of one area of the family room. No character, no interest, no texture. And most of all no purpose.
Sketches are drawn to convey what the final outcome should look like. 2 more cabinets were built to match the existing cabinet on the left. Wood tops were added to add surface space and maybe even room for a dry bar if the homeowner’s would like. The cabinets create more storage area and filled out the space while keeping the look historically accurate and charming.
Then, hopefully, all turns out well and a custom additional to the room is created. Here’s the same area – completed, but not staged.
This family room was similar to a walk out basement. All the walls were stone, so installing lighting was difficult. We came up with a solutioon to add modern conviences (like lights!) with historic charm.
This swing arm sconce was rewired to be a plug in, then attached to an antique shutter. Did you catch that on the reveal?
I love thinking up projects like the shutter lamps!

We also found some great pieces to furnish the spaces with at Oskar Huber furniture.
This rug had just the right amount of color, but was still muted enough.
