As tin Chinese style, their dominant color is light red, white , black and gold. As the common-used element, they decorate their wall using Chinese calligraphic or paintings that telling about Chinese gods, lotus, dragon or other Chinese mythology. They also use red lamp ion for lighting. While, Japanese, mostly, specialized with their wooden furniture with natural color such as brown, white or black.
