My hope is that everything emelia readers enjoy reading this blog. I’m not on a huge mission to entertain, inform, or inspire people. If I do, great! But that’s not my goal, there are so many other blogs that already do that and do it really well. I just hope you enjoy reading it enough that you come back and feel comfortable leaving a comment. And if you really enjoy the blog, you should follow me on Twitter @em_everything for one-liners and Instagram @everythingemelia for pictures of my doings, or Pinterest for my inspirations. Basically, just enjoy everything emelia, got it?

Blog Background

I started reading Young House Love back in 2013 and was so inspired that I started my own house blog in December 2013: Hate to Love the Split. At the time we had purchased my in-laws house and we were doing a lot of DIY remodeling. I posted several before/after pictures of spaces we revamped, like the master bedroom, the basement, and the main bathroom. At the same time, I started reading other blogs and realized I had a lot more to say. I began writing about everything; fitness, recipes, traveling, crafts. I love the variety and the creativity I could take with different subjects.

In August 2016 I re-branded to everything emelia to better represent my brand. I did hesitate using my name in the blog title, but then I realized that it’s the best description for it. The blog is all about me, so it makes sense.

  1. Hi! I tried leaving a comment on the post of your foyer makeover but I can’t figure that out. How do you like the trough light from West Elm? I don’t understand why they (and pottery barn) don’t have reviews on their website….doesn’t give the impression that they stand behind their products. Also, is there glass on the bottom portion of the light? I am kind of hoping there isn’t and that changing the light bulb is super easy without increasing the fixture. Thanks for your time!

    1. We loved the West Elm light in our entry! We no longer live in that house, but for the 6 months that we had them, we loved them! There is no glass on the bottom so changing out the bulb isn’t a major task- it also makes dusting pretty simple too. I would buy them again in a heartbeat, but wait until they are having a sale. 🙂

  2. Hey,

    My name is Katie. I was wondering, do you accept guest posts on It’s about home improvement and stuff, so it would be a perfect fit for your blog and would greatly increase the traffic on your site.
    I’ll gladly send you over some sample articles if you like.

    Will be waiting for your response.

    All the Best,
