Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is quite simple – we love beautiful and functional pieces that help foster a sense of simplicity and beauty in our dwellings. Our focus is on creating homes that invite and celebrate the simple moments of the everyday – dinner by candlelight with loved ones, curling up on the sofa with a warm blanket and a good book, quietly washing dishes at the sink. These quiet, unassuming moments we share at home are often the richest and give our lives a sense of beauty that transcends any aesthetic. We believe that layering our homes with objects is not simply about filling our spaces with things but first and foremost about celebrating the gift that is found in everyday moments.

Live simply, live beautifully!

Our Story

We’re Danielle and Joël Cyr. We started June (formerly MÛR Lifestyle) back in 2014 as a way to fulfill our desire to pursue more meaningful work and a balanced lifestyle. Joël had spent the previous 10 years working in the hospitality industry as a chef while Danielle left her work to focus her energy on raising our two young children. We knew deep down that something needed to change so we paired Danielle’s keen eye for design and interiors with Joël’s entrepreneurial spirit to create June; an online boutique of quality home goods for simple living. What started off as a side project grew quickly, and operation swiftly moved from our home to a small studio in Winnipeg’s Exchange District.

Soon enough more growth and transition presented itself, and with that the need for a fresh new look. We made the transition from MÛR (French for “ripe”) to JUNE as a way to symbolize our readiness for the new season ahead – opening a storefront!

Now you can find us in downtown Winnipeg, next door to Thom Bargen Coffee and Tea, at 2-250 Kennedy Street. Come by, grab a coffee and say hi – we’d love to see you!

Our Home

‘Home’ is a large part of who we are and what we celebrate at JUNE. We invite our customers and community – whose reach extends beyond our local dwellings – to consider the land on which they stand and have learned to call home. To consider those who walked the land before them, and those before them.

JUNE is located on Treaty 1 territory and is the traditional land of the Anishinaabe (Ojibway), Ininew (Cree), Oji-Cree, Dene and Dakota peoples and the heart of the Métis Nation Homeland.
