Homes don’t have break rooms in the traditional sense. But, it is the perfect way to describe a living room. Everyone comes together in one space after a long day, flops on the couch, and soaks up the comfortable atmosphere. Breaktime green feels roomy but also feels like a hug. If work break rooms were as wonderfully cozy, maybe I wouldn’t take off early. Okay, well, maybe I would.
