Apartment living means keeping your updates temporary; nothing says summer more than bright colors. So, consider freshening a bathroom with optimistic and lively colored bath mats, towels, and decor.

Natural accessories, rustic woods, creamy linens, and seaside or nautical decor all speak to summer’s light and fresh feeling. Add these elements throughout your apartment in the form of wooden spoons or vases, nautical striped napkins or curtains, and sea-inspired artwork for a quick transformation.

Five Easy Recipes for a Delicious Picnic this Spring Season

Picnics are common bonding events for families and friends. And at the Orion apartments, you have the opportunity to enjoy new spring season recipes. You can try the following recipes this season and see how you like them.

Easy Recipes to try in Your Kitchen

1. Chicken Salad Sandwich

Pack your chicken salad with red grapes and cashews and serve it on slices of bread. It’s a simple enough recipe, but you can take it up a notch if you fancy. Add chopped chives to add some pomp to the sandwiches.

2. Cowboy Caviar

This one does not need an oven, just some chopping, and tossing. This dip looks like a salad, but make sure you dice the vegetables into small pieces. Add some pepper, garlic, and lime to add taste.

3. Upgraded Macaroni Salad

You need to add some unorthodox ingredients to traditional macaroni with this one. You may add diced ham, hard-boiled eggs, or bacon. Make sure to be generous with the cheese to make the dish creamy.

4. Tuna Wraps

The tuna wrap is one of the easy recipes for quick picnic ideas. This recipe gives you control over your adding. You could add fresh spinach, tomatoes, and more cheese to add more taste.

5. Greek Salad

The Greek salad recipe produces a nutritious and healthy dish. Although the salad calls for some feta cheese, the dominant ingredients are tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce.

Enjoying the Weather Outdoors

A nice picnic calls for a serene place to sit down and enjoy the meal with your family and friends. Lucky for you, many suitable locations surround the Orion apartments. For instance, you might enjoy the Snow Park, which has rides and swings that kids can plan on as you have a good time together. And if you are looking for parks just a stone’s throw away from your home, the Lincon Square Park or the Madison Park provide excellent options.

Two Kitchen Must-Haves for Your Delicious Recipes

Seamless use of these spring season recipes requires you have at least two essential kitchen appliances. For instance, you need a grater for your cheese. Suppose it can produce different grades, the better. The pestle and mortar are other kitchen appliance must-haves. They come in handy when making different kinds of paste.

Your Orion apartment is the ideal base to explore the brilliant city of Oakland. It’s also the perfect place to discover exciting new indoor hobbies. Here are some great ways to find a new interest in the comfort of your apartment.

Three Hobbies to Pick Up This Month

  1. Building a Plant Collection

How about trying your hand at indoor gardening? Plants can enhance the beauty of your Orion apartment, and many are easy for beginners. Oakland is home to the world’s oldest bonsai tree at Lake Merritt – perfect inspiration!

  1. Finding Your Inner Zen

Not so much a hobby as a way of life, meditation might change your whole outlook. Oakland has several meditation centers, but it’s easy to try out at home.

  1. Making a New Friend

Since Orion is a pet-friendly neighborhood, why not welcome a new furry (or feathered, or scaly!) friend to the family? Training pets is such a rewarding hobby, and having a companion animal around has loads of well-being benefits.

Tips for Dedicating Space In Your Home

Some hobbies barely require any space, but if you’re welcoming a new pet, you’ll want to make sure it has the room and set up it needs. And if you’re trying out meditation, you might want to clear a quiet nook, leaving just a few calming features.

Why not start with a good apartment spring cleaning? Clearing the clutter will make it so much easier to create space for your new hobby – however much room it requires.

How Apartment Living Helps You Embrace Your Hobbies

Whatever your new hobby, you’ll love getting absorbed in it at the Orion. Your home is full of unique spaces for getting lost in your interests, from your apartment to the community lounge, raised courtyard, and rooftop with sweeping views. What will you try?

Get Ready for Spring Cleaning In Your Orion Apartment

Spring cleaning is upon us and now is the perfect time to rethink our living spaces. Since the pandemic, many of us realize our apartments need to be more than a place to relax, they need to double as a home office and entertainment area. Because we are spending more time at home top home design trends point toward comfortable and cozy apartment living spaces. You are already ahead of the curve, living in comfort at the Orion.

How to Declutter and Get Ready For Spring

Clutter creeps up quickly in a home. And it can take hours to sort things you don’t need from things you want to keep. The easiest way to fight clutter is to consistently address the areas of your home where clutter has a tendency to accumulate. Keep a donation basket in a handy locale so that any unwanted or unused item can go directly into the bin, instead of being piled up somewhere, where you’ll be forced to sort it out later.

Put a “one in, one out” rule into place in your home. Before a new item comes in, an old item must go out, either in the trash or to the donation bin. This ensures there is adequate space to store the new item in your home, instead of just piling new things onto old, unused belongings.

Staple Pieces You Have to Incorporate

Organizing your living room around a staple piece is a great way to add your personal style. A soft-edged accent chair or a curved velvety couch is one way to embrace cozy and comfort. Rounded pieces like wooden side tables or even a colorful round layered rug can be an inexpensive way to revamp your living space and make it feel stylish and comfortable.

Trendy Apartment Living

Incorporating top home design trends into apartment living at the Orion is easy. It’s about creating a cozy living space that nurtures your lifestyle and lets your personality shine. Add a few of the ideas listed here and you will have a space everyone can enjoy.
