Red is a typically blessed colour among Chinese, symbolizing happiness, healthy and wealthy. In case you do not want to have a festive furnishing, you can play a mix-and-match game. White matches perfectly with red. It can be the dominant color while the red color acts as filler for the elements in the dining area.
