Examine a style, and then 'faux' it in its minimalist state. For example, Chinese style can be either very fussy, dark reds and tiny florals, or it can be sweeping turquoise with a hint of cherry blossom branches. One almost impossible for the layman to replicate at home- The other quite simply a background of paint with some twisted brushstrokes and blobs of colour for the blossoms. Ditch the ornately carved furniture in favour of a plain lacquered piece with those round brass 'moon' handles that instantly makes the piece look eastern. Look at the colour palettes they use- A lot was taken from nature, from mountains with heavy rainfall, greys and inky blues. One of the easiest interiors to recreate.
