We all know it's hard to be a model — but Kendall Jenner has taken it to another level. According to a blog post on her app, Kenny has been torturing herself through interior design... in order to stay skinny.
"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 color choice: Baker-Miller Pink is the only color scientifically proven to calm you AND suppress your appetite."
"I was like, "I NEED this color in my house!" I then found someone to paint the room and now I'm loving it!" she added.
We're no scientists, but the sight of a Pepto-pink wall would definitely kill our vibe.
We've heard of plenty of crazy ways that models suppress their appetites, but building it into your home is a new one.
While the placebo effect could be at work, Jenner might actually be onto something — scientists have been researching how colors affect human behavior for decades.
The effect of Baker-Miller Pink was explored in a study published in1985 by Alexander G. Schauss, PH.D., that collected findings from correctional facilities, psychiatric hospitals, and tests on undergraduate students. This shade of pink was indeed linked to lowering aggression and suppressing appetites in some cases, but the results were inconsistent. Schauss also noted that the size of the room, the color of the floors, and lighting also played a role in the results. So a fresh coat of paint isn't going perform a miracle.
But pink isn't the only color that can mess with your appetite...
Color consultant Leatrice Eiseman told the Chicago Tribune in an article published in 1991 that "We know that some colors stimulate the appetite and some colors turn people off totally when it comes to food." Fast food restaurants that want you to make large orders and hit the road right away "use a lot of orange, yellow and red; those warm colors are stimulating." Fine dining restaurants that want you to stick around "use subtler, high class variations of orange ... peach, apricot and cream, colors that engender softness and warmth."
Think about all the times your parents yelled at you not to eat in your room. All they had to do was paint the walls pink!
Wasted opportunity, mom.
So the next time you feel like your surroundings are making you feel some type of way, beware.
There are powers at be that may be playing colorful tricks on you.
