Cloffices are particularly popular among fashion and lifestyle bloggers, who generally work from home and need somewhere to stash their envy-inducing collections of clothing, handbags, and makeup. However, you can totally replicate a room like the ones below in your own space—all you need is plenty of shelving, a clothing rack, and of course, a great desk at which to work!
To kickstart your inspiration, we’re sharing seven cloffices that are just as pretty as they are practical.
1. Pink and White Perfection
It isn’t always possible for a cloffice to have a simple color scheme, because clothing comes in every color of the rainbow! That said, Teresa Caruso of Money Can Buy Lipstick allowed pink and white to prevail in her cloffice, which features IKEA’s Pax Wardrobe system. “Not only is getting ready easier, but it has also made running my business simpler,” Caruso wrote in a post about her cloffice reveal.
2. Neutral Notes
Emily Vartanian of Stiletto Beats also features mainly light and neutral colors in her cloffice and wanted to keep her wall color simple. In a blog post, she notes, “I first started by painting the room a crisp white. White rooms are a blank canvas, they allow you to play with furniture and decor as you please. With all my clothes, shoes, and bags, I knew that white was the way to go.”
3. Extreme Organization
Jacquelyn Clark designed a stunning cloffice for her clients that is rooted in white and clear pieces and features tons of storage. Just look at how nice that stash of makeup looks! If you don’t wish to keep tons of shoes out on display, small boxes like the ones pictured on the top shelf are an excellent alternative.
4. Cozy Creative Space
With a laid-back boho vibe, Lauren Elyce’s cloffice looks like the perfect place to kick back and relax—while being insanely productive, of course! Mid-century furniture and sleek clothing racks allow the clothes and accessories to be the main focus. After all, isn’t that what a cloffice is all about?
5. Calm and Classic
Julia Dzafic of Lemon Stripes designed a cloffice with preppy, coastal flair. Ceramic ginger jars, a rattan pendant light, and Gray Malin artwork make the space look sophisticated and stylish, while a large white and gold desk allows for plenty of space to sit down and focus.
6. Girlboss Glam
Lauren Roscopf of A Lo Profile designed an extra glam space featuring wallpaper, a luxe ottoman, and other feminine elements such as the fashion artwork and sparkly chandelier. As she notes on her blog, “Because the room is generally neutral with the clothes and accessories adding color, I wanted to keep the statement wall neutral, too.”
7. Funky and Fresh
Pursuit of Home’s Allie has a cloffice that’s full of eclectic flair. We love that there’s even space for a love seat, and we can totally imagine having friends come over to try on and model different pieces! That said, there’s still plenty of space to work, and the room even features an oversized calendar where Allie likes to plan out her monthly goals.
8. Strategic Storage
Want to turn your ho-hum home office into a chic cloffice? Invest in your storage. In this San Francisco house tour, an exposed rack and designated shoes shelves give this unassuming space a fashion-forward flair.
