Your home, your happy place. What you do within the walls of your NEMA San Francisco home can shape your mood. From curling up with a good book to a little hygge or virtual Happy Hour, here are a few simple things you can do every day to feel happier at home. Retreat yourself at NEMA.

Bring Nature Inside.

Adorn your apartment with fresh cuttings from farmers markets and find that perfect plant to soften a corner or place a plant near your new workspace at home. Our neighbors at Plants and Friends in Hayes Valley has a new online shop to get started, plus offers delivery of small and medium-sized plants.

Host a Virtual Happy Hour.

Nights out with friends are on pause, but nights in are having a moment. Thanks to technology, you can still hang out and have a virtual happy hour in your NEMA apartments with friends and family near and far.

Add a Pop of Color.

Pantone Color of the Year, Classic Blue is popping up all over the place and bringing a gently calming effect. Add a spot of blue in your NEMA apartment spaces with throw pillows, wall art or with a new rug.

Feel Transformative with Breathwork.

As you recently learned with Kristi Locks via our Resident App, Transformative Breathwork helps cleanse our bodies of emotions and stuck energies. Watch for more virtual classes customized for your well-being from NEMA!

Craft a Culinary Skill.

Warm up those NEMA ovens, get those ranges ready and whip up some local flavor right in the heart of your home. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite local San Francisco restaurant recipes for you to enjoy. Things couldn’t be more convenient when The Market at 1355 Market Street is mere steps from your door at NEMA San Francisco. Baking is a bonus to fill your apartment with comforting scents and the ability to share something wonderful with a neighbor.

Breathe Outdoors.

Take a socially distanced stroll or spin around the area. Enjoy the temporary murals popping up, spy Tara Mechani, the larger-than-life creation just a short half mile from NEMA at Patricia's Green, or pop over to the nearby Heart of the City Farmers Market to support a local farmers and take in some city sights.

Hygge Your Home.

Indulge your Inner Bibliophile.
