And not just any shade of pink, either.
If you follow Kendall Jenner on Instagram, you’ll have seen her posts last month showing the massive fake tree and fairy lights in her €6m West Hollywood home.
While the model’s festive decorations were nothing out of the ordinary, it was her walls that really caught our attention, pained top to bottom in a bubblegum pink with a decidedly retro feel.
Compared to the pared-back whites and beiges of Khloé and Kourtney’s homes or the monochrome and marble luxe furnishings in Kylie’s Hollywood Hills mansion, Kendall’s paintjob was a stand-out look.
Now the model has revealed why the reason she opted for pink walls, and it turns out it’s not just because she’s a fan of all things girly. That particular pink, known in decorating circles as Baker-Miller pink, apparently has the ability to calm you down and – here’s the big one – curb food cravings.
“Baker-Miller pink is the only colour scientifically proven to calm you and suppress your appetite,” Kendall revealed on her app, saying she found out the quirky fact by fluke as she was deciding what colour palette to use in her new home.
“I went to dinner with friends and they had just gone to the Human Condition exhibition at a former hospital in LA. They were telling me there’s a pink room at the exhibit that had an explanation of the colour choice. I was like, ‘I NEED this color in my house!'”
Kendall doesn’t have an ounce of weight to lose, but living in a home painted in a so-called “calming” colour no doubt comes in handy if you suffer with anxiety and panic attacks, as Kendall recently revealed she does.
“Anxiety was a huge hurdle for me to deal with this past year,” she told fans in a separate blog post. “I once had a really bad [anxiety] attack on a plane and just had to ride it out. I felt my heart beating a million miles an hour, and I even went a little numb. I try to prevent anxiety attacks by bringing my mind somewhere else.”
Of course, it’s worth noting that Baker-Miller pink hasn’t exactly been “scientifically proven” to curb hunger and supress anxiety as Kendall claims.
Yes, it was linked to those effects in a small number of studies in the Eighties, but since then no more research has been done. But forgetting all of that for a moment, HOW good did Kenny’s tree look against that pink backdrop? If you want to run out and buy a tub of Baker-Miller Dulux for that reason alone, we support you 100%.
