As we prepare for the cooler months, it is time to hunker down and spend some serious time cozying up our spaces. Kelly Clarkson is well aware of this fact. In a recent Instagram post, the American Idol winner shared her cozy autumn nook. It's serving major fall vibes and we think every home needs one.
Luckily, the singer shared all the details of the autumnal space she put together with Wayfair so we can recreate this living room idea in our homes.

Interior design experts confirm that Kelly's look is perfect for autumnal relaxation.
Louise Bradley, a London-based interior designer says that when you are trying to create cozy fall interiors, you should 'choose natural materials such as wood, linen, bamboo, and earthy ceramics.' She continues, 'Together they create a beautiful, harmonious scheme that feels cozy over the autumn season.'
Louise Bradley has over 30 years of design experience creating classic, contemporary interiors. Her London-based studio exemplifies her detail-led, and quality focused approach. As one of the UK's leading interior designers, she has worked on bespoke luxury interior design projects across the globe.
Louise also recommends choosing a natural color palette. She says, 'Earthy colors evoke a sense of being in nature and work hand in hand with the rich greens of foliage which can feel very festive.' Furthermore, she says, utilizing neutral creams and natural finishes makes it so the house 'lends itself to decorating for the festive season'
Kelly's nook edit expertly meets Louise's requirements. In her own home, layers of natural wood, warm brassy steel, and earthy linen create an essential autumn look. The natural color palette is versatile and could be incorporated into any home.
Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens goes on to say that Kelly Clarkson's choice to decorate a reading nook in particular is a great way to make your home cozier for fall. 'A nook is a space specifically dedicated to relaxation,' says Jennifer. 'By creating this little corner of tranquility in her living room, Kelly Clarkson emphasizes her dedication to warmth and comfort in design. Meanwhile, the stylish furniture pieces she has chosen keep the look sophisticated.'
Jen is the Editor (Digital) of Homes & Gardens online. Before starting this position, she had completed various interior design courses at KLC Design School, as well as working across Ideal Home, LivingEtc, 25 Beautiful Homes and Country Homes & Interiors as an interiors writer.
Though decorating for fall can feel a tad cliche, Kelly Clarkson proves it does not have to be, you can create a really chic and cozy space. By sprucing up the areas you already use with warm, seasonal details, neutral colors, and natural materials, you have the opportunity to follow Kelly's example and create a subtly seasonal vibe.
