Storage ideas for the fashionista

With limited space available in her condo, savvy Canadian fashion blogger Stephanie Sterjovski incorporated her office into her closet – creating a stylish ‘cloffice’.

“It made sense to combine the two, as my clothes are a huge part of my job,” Stephanie says. “So, it would keep me inspired, as long as it was presented in an organised way.”
Her PAX wardrobe from IKEA was a key element, with Stephanie carefully selecting each component to suit her exact needs – capitalising on every inch of space through a clever mix of open and closed storage.

A hidden closet with mirrored sliding doors, and a floor-length mirror on an opposite wall open up the space, as does the Lucite desk, while extra shelves at the bottom of the wardrobe store office supplies.
“Everything else can be displayed and styled in a cute way that makes the space feel very boutique-like, which I love!” says Stephanie.

With the assistance of interior designer Jacquelyn Clark of Lark & Linen, the ‘cloffice’ is fresh and uncluttered: “They key to creating a clean look is to keep the overall palette neutral,” explains Jacquelyn. “Steph’s closet then brings an added hit of colour – the space can completely transform depending on her current wardrobe, and season.”
