Danish trend analyst Nina Bruun continues her partnership with Tikkurila Group on a more regular basis. She will choose monthly color collages for Tikkurila and Beckers, both paving the way in the design world and enriching our pioneering role as a unique color expert.

Bruun, who runs her own consultancy, has previously worked with Tikkurila in the Color Now 2018 jury. This fruitful cooperation will continue in 2018 in the form of modern color journals that follow the latest trends. 


I love the idea that through my visual reports I will be able to share what I know about colors, trends and my personal sources of inspiration, in keeping with the latest developments.

Her monthly visual mood boards consist of topical and interesting surfaces, complete with color codes obtained with Tikkurila’s Color Catcher spectrophotometer. This will enable us to enjoy her color choices and to use them in interior decoration. Tikkurila takes pride in sharing inspiration specifically in the world of colors and trends to support customers' personal preferences.

The former design manager of Muuto, Bruun’s will now publish Trend reports both in her own Instragram account @nina_bruun with hashtag #tikkurilacolorjournal. At the end of the year, her mini reports will be combined into a full-year trend summary.

Color Journal No 1: Green

This time a year we’re almost destined to think about spring and all the new things it will bring. Spring equals life, light, hope and in many ways a new beginning. There are many reasons to be inspired by the color green and the most important ones have to be the nature and environment. I think it’s natural to become aware of the elements around you when entering a new season and we need to take care of this earth by thinking about our consumption. In this sense green becomes a beautiful and strong color which makes it really versatile to work with. Green can stand on its own but it can also be combined with a lot of other colors. It’s both crazy and calm at the same time and I truly love that.
