The Psychological Reason Kendall Jenner Painted her Living Room Bright Pink

Kelsey Clark

In addition to her chops as a model, Estée Lauder spokeswoman, and reality TV star, it appears that Kendall Jenner is also interested in the art of colour psychology as it pertains to interior design. Jenner recently shared a photo of her tasteful white Christmas tree against a bright reddish-pink wall on Instagram, captioning the photo with "Kenny's pink xmas." While the model's colour choice may seem a bit random, it was actually a decision rooted in colour psychology. 

"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 L.A.," explained Jenner in a new post on her app. "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!'"

As People reports, the colour was actually studied in the 1960s by scientist Alexander Schauss at the American Institute for Biosocial Research in Tacoma, Washington. Schauss tested the colour, originally known as "Drunk Tank Pink," in two separate correctional facilities to see if it would successfully calm prisoners, garnering conflicting results. While Jenner's colour choice may not have been thoroughly researched, we're interested to see what other decorating decisions she makes while turning her new $6.5 million USD house into a home.
