Danish trend analyst Nina Bruun's monthly color collage is all about pink. The co-operation with the award-winning trend analyst enriches Tikkurila Group's pioneering role as a unique color expert. Her visual mood boards consist of topical and interesting surfaces, completed with Tikkurila and Beckers color codes.

Color Journal No 2: Pink

"This month’s color journal represents the feeling I get when spring is on its way. I love the increasing and brighter days and that the birds start to sing. It awakes something in me and probably a lot of other people as well. To me, spring always calls for a change and pink actually represents this change with its boldness and brightness. Even though it’s still a quite feminine color I get so happy when I see men embrace it as a part of their clothing or interior. Besides, pink is one of the most playful colors I know and it reminds me of my childhood. 

The warm nuances of pink definitely trend more at the moment, but for this journal I’ve mainly explored the cold shades of the color. I’ve tried to go back in time in able to look forward and it has been important for me to play with different surfaces and tones of the color to achieve a balanced and nuanced expression." 

- Nina Bruun, Trend Analyst


Tikkurila color codes: M331, F334, J322, K326, and H323

Co-operation will continue throughout the year

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."
