Bored of staring at the same white wall in your apartment? In the mood for a home makeover? Adding some cool furniture or homeware to your pad is an easy option, but if you're on a budget, you can always go for simple options like flowers and indoor plants, or even a piece of statement-making art to hang on the wall. Of course, art galleries can often feel intimidating, and they're not the most wallet friendly. So, to help you out, we've put together some great places you can head to for some beautiful artwork that won't burn a hole in your wallet. Best of all, you can get all of these online and have them delivered straight to your door.

Bamboo Scenes is a photography gallery based in an old printing house next to popular Sai Ying Pun eatery, Locofama. The gallery aims to promote the works of Hong Kong-based photographers and stocks a wide range of images. Prints are available in three sizes, and are printed and framed by local Hong Kong artisans. In addition, 10 percent of all proceeds raised are donated to charitable organisations in the city, in a bid to give back to the community.

We know what you're thinking, but there's no shame in buying art from a furniture store! Especially if it's from Emoh.

Available in sizes from mini to large, you can add a touch of warmth to your home no matter the size.

And if that's not enough, browse through the rest of the site where you'll find plenty of home decor pieces to liven up your space.
