You won’t believe why Kendall Jenner painted her room pink

By hellomagazine.com

We all know the mammoth amount of willpower it takes to resist chocolate or cookies at 3 pm. But Kendall Jenner just revealed that she has a rather unusual way to control her cravings...

In a new post on her app, titled 'The Story Behind my Pink Wall,' Kendall explained that she chose the colour because it has a calming effect – and suppresses your appetite.

"I decided to paint it pink because while I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the room, I went to dinner with friends and they had just gone to the 'Human Condition' exhibition at a former hospital in LA," she wrote.

"They were telling me there's a pink room at the exhibit that had an explanation of the colour choice: Baker-Miller Pink is the only colour scientifically proven to calm you AND suppress your appetite," she claimed.

"I was like, 'I NEED this colour in my house!' I then found someone to paint the room and now I'm loving it."

According to research published in the Journal of Consumer Research in 2012, colour could play a role in your appetite. However, the role it plays largely depends on what you associate a specific colours with. If you tend to eat very few pink foods, the colour may diminish your appetite.

Our friends at FLARE took it upon themselves to investigate Kendall's decor decree and found that you might want to re-think pink.

According to Toronto-based colour specialist Sylvia O’Brien, "[Baker-Miller Pink] suppresses aggressive behaviour for about 15 minutes, and then it doesn’t really work after that." She adds: “If you want to suppress appetite and calm down, you want to be looking at blues.”

Her advice for Kendall? If she’s keen on sticking to pink, O’Brien recommends going with a paler shade because “after about 15 minutes, Baker-Miller pink is not a calming colour.”
