cff SMALL SPACE DECOR: AN OFFICE IN A CLOSET | Simple and Serene Living


Friday, January 30, 2015

When I was looking at an apartment in Atlanta, I noticed that there was an alcove in the living room that looked like it might have been a closet at one time. I started thinking about what I could do with that space, and as I sat here staring at my messy desk this morning I thought how nice it would be if I could use that as a sewing table and have a tiny office somewhere else. Cue the light bulb!! Why couldn't I use that alcove for a desk and storage place for some of my Etsy things.

Time for some ideas.

This is probably the size of the space in the apartment I looked at, and as I really don't use my computer at the desk, I would have room for my printer and office and shipping supplies. 

This is a cute "cloffice". I love that word. Not sure who originally coined it, but I am definitely going to keep using it. I like that she has added a curtain to hide the closet (I would definitely do that) and pretty wallpaper which lightens up the space.

This is a cozy little space. Great use of white with just a pop of color. I bet this person is very organized.

Love color? This would be the space for you. 


Well, I didn't find my perfect "cloffice", but I am getting a lot of great ideas.

  1. Cute ideas. Looks like you'd have to stay organized tho - which I'm not. I'd surely have to have a curtain and/ or door! LOL


  2. Love those spaces! I think that's such clever way to set up an office.

  3. What a fantastic idea, the cloffice! Perhaps that is the answer for us too. It certainly has my mind grinding! Thanks for sharing and wish you a lovely weekend. Pam xx

    1. Don't you just love that word? Hope you have a wonderful weekend too, Pam.

  4. Great ideas! I spend too much time behind my desk to make it in a closet, but really, the pictures are full of organisation ideas!
