The reason Kendall Jenner painted her living room this very specific pink

Kendall Jenner posted this photo of her faux-snow covered Christmas tree against a newly painted pink wall recently, but there was more to it than meets the eye.

More than just a feminine fancy, there was a story behind why the 21-year-old model chose this specific shade of pink to paint the living room walls of her $6.5 million Los Angeles home.

In a post titled "The story behind my pink wall", Kendall explained she had dinner with friends after going to the 'Human Condition' exhibition in a former LA hospital.

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

It's not quite that simple, unfortunately for all our new years healthy eating resolutions, however. As People reports, the research isn't quite as definitive as Kendall suggests. Though in the 1960s, scientist Alexander Schauss at the American Institute for Biosocial Research in Tacoma, Washington, tested the colour that was originally known as Drunk Tank Pink in two separate correctional facilities to see if it would calm prisoners. However, he got conflicting results. In the 1980s, Johns Hopkins researchers found the colour may work as an appetite suppressant.

Kendall has previously said on her blog that she's eager to get started with the interior decorating in her new home. "I’m SO excited to be in my new house. I just feel so incredibly blessed! … I have SO much to do, you don’t realise all of the little things when you come from a smaller space—like guest bathrooms!" she wrote.

"I had completely grown out of my condo and nothing fit anymore. I was there for two years and it was just time. I wanted to entertain properly; I wanted to go outside; I really wanted a pool."

While there are plenty more design decisions to come, for now, she's tracked down the perfect pink shade, and the rest is bright blush history.
