Happy At Your Orion Home - Orion

Happy At Your Orion Home

Make your Orion home your happy space. We have gathered up a few ideas to make every day at home a little brighter and better.

Let the Outdoors In
Interior plants provide numerous benefits while living in your residence. From purifying air to creating a warm and inviting setting, houseplants can really take your interior space to the next level. We have created a short list of sturdy plants which are perfect for apartment dwellers.

Channel your inner Iron Chef
We’ve rounded up recipes for 6 local Oakland chef dishes that you can recreate in your very own kitchen at Orion, including a Skillet Steak from Belcampo. There’s no better way to spend quality time with those you love than to share a meal made by you. Need help? You can learn to cook from home with the help of these East Bay classes and experts. Conveniently, Rocky’s Market at Brooklyn Basin is steps from our door and stocked with your favorite staples.

Make it a Movie Night
Learning that some of your favorite movies were filmed close by is always fun. Visit Oakland has rounded up a list of over a dozen movies made in Oakland. Pick up a Pizza Margherita from Forge and your evening is set.

Give your oven the Night Off
For those days you just don’t want to cook, you can support some of your favorite local, Oakland waterfront eateries offering takeout and/or delivery! We have compiled a convenient list in order for you to find available restaurants and how to order.

Catch Up on your CrossFit
You can find plenty of fitness workouts available to get your fitness fix. Our Jack London Square friends at Grassroots CrossFit East Bay are offering online classes via Zoom for members.

Tidy Up
Take a page from Marie Kondo’s book and try the KonMari Method, encouraging tidying by category – not by location. Be thoughtful when deciding whether or not to keep or discard a piece of furniture, clothing, or any other possession. Thank them for their service – then let them go. We’ve gathered some tips to tidying up.  

Celebrate Bike Month
Pledge to celebrate May is Bike Month. Bike East Bay invites you to participate in virtual events and activities with friends and colleagues to win prizes.

Step Outside
Lucky for us, we have the Oakland Embarcadero and Estuary at Brooklyn Basin as our front yard! With the Bay Trail two blocks away, there’s plenty of open space just outside our front door to take in water views and breathe fresh air safely. *Remember to bring your mask and social distance.

Lend a Hand
Giving feels good. Helping someone is healthy. Spend some spare time making masks, assisting food banks, ordering from your favorite local small business, or reaching out to those isolated to brighten their day.
