Let’s go over some best practices for collaborating with Vinci on your design transformations. Get ready to be inspired!

How to reimagine any space with Vinci

Tips for getting started 

  • Start with a stellar picture: A good image matters! Vinci's creative powers rely on the pictures you provide. To get the best results, start with a well-lit image taken straight on at eye level. Try to avoid having partial bits of furniture in the image or objects behind other items. For really large or complicated rooms, consider designing them in sections to let Vinci focus his full attention on each piece.

  • Understand your personal style: If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. Take our Aesthetic DNA Quiz to discover your personal design style, tailored to your unique taste. You can then ask Vinci to redesign any room in your unique taste! Simply tell Vinci to use the design from your quiz to update your space.

  • Small changes, big impact: Don't just limit Vinci to just total room transformations. He's equally powerful when it comes to smaller changes. Want to experiment with new throw pillows, a vase, or a work of art? Vinci has you covered.

Tips for chatting with Vinci

  • Show, don't tell: Sometimes words can't fully capture what we have in mind. That's where photos come in handy! Feel free to share inspiration images with Vinci to help him see what you're looking for. Whether it's a dreamy living room you found on Pinterest or a snap of a favorite boutique hotel, images will help Vinci better understand your desired aesthetic. To upload a photo to Vinci, simply type in the chat box "I'd like to give you an inspo photo."

  • Be specific about your vision: Before you begin chatting with Vinci, take a moment to envision what you want your space to look and feel like. Is it cozy and rustic, or sleek and modern? Then, clearly describe what you want to Vinci in as much detail as possible. Don't just say you want a "nice sofa." Instead, let him know if you're leaning towards a classic leather Chesterfield or a trendy velvet sectional. Do you want to see what your living room looks like with Tiffany blue walls? Let Vinci know! The more specific you are, the better Vinci can understand and execute your vision.

  • Keep it conversational: Vinci is an expert AI with a knack for design, so there's no need to outsmart him. Instead, just chat with him like you would with a designer friend. Vinci thrives on collaboration and understands the power of human creativity.

Tips for getting inspired and making changes

  • Channel your favorite designer or brand: Vinci loves to channel the essence of specific designers or brands. If you have a favorite designer or brand in mind, let Vinci know. He'll keep that in mind and guide you on how to infuse your room with their signature style.

  • Keep what you love: If Vinci creates something that you absolutely love, don't hesitate to tell him to keep it. Sometimes, in an effort to get closer to your vision, Vinci might unintentionally remove elements that were a slam dunk. By expressing your appreciation for design choices you like, you can guide Vinci in creating spaces that truly speak to you.

  • Embrace changes through iteration: Rather than overwhelming Vinci with too many requests at once, focus on making changes through iteration. This will help Vinci fine-tune your design over time.

Experimentation is the key to finding that perfect balance and creating a space that truly reflects your story.

  • Trust the process: Design is an adventure, and sometimes it takes a few iterations to find what you’re looking for. Trust Vinci's guidance, be patient, keep an open mind, and enjoy the process!
