If investing in fine art is way out of your budget, don’t think that you have to live with bare walls forever. A gallery wall consisting of a mishmash of posters, your kids’ artwork, fun postcards and even repurposed wall calendar art can turn out to be a total scene-stealer.

But if you want to start collecting, limited-edition prints and small paintings are also a good option for people who want to dip their toes in art but haven’t got the spending power. Here are the Instagram accounts to follow if you want to order, or simply browse through them to get visual inspiration for your space. Once you pick your artwork, have them professionally framed, mix them up with old posters and your children’s artwork, et voila, the beginnings of the Louvre can start right in your living room.

Illustrator Anna Bond’s whimsical gouache paintings of whimsical florals, travel destinations, and classic children’s book characters have earned her brand, Rifle Paper Co. a cult following. With collaborations that stretch from LeSportsac to Keds, nabbing a Rifle print is like owning a piece of pop culture. If you can afford her retro-whimsical prints, check out her small stationery goods like notebooks and cards, instead.

The younger brother of artist Tokwa Peñaflorida and son of Mayi—also a painter—has created a name for himself with his portraits ethereal, fairytale-like women with a hint of darkness. He reveals his reasons for his preference for female subjects: “Mas expressive sila. Kapag masaya sila, pinapakita nila. Pag depressed, kitang-kita mo.” Aspace in Makati carries his works, and he sells in various art fairs, but he also accepts commissions.
