At CKW Lifestyle we design residential, leisure and commercial spaces that are comfortable, personal and inspiring.


Great interior design is great art, designed with the purpose to serve you 

and the specific lifestyle you lead.

Our unique individual perspective, grounded in both design and architecture, reflects an acute designer’s eye toward colour and materials and a strong discipline of space and form.


We are artists, we are designers, and we are purveyors of excellence - here to enhance your life and how you enjoy the space you live in or work in. As a progressive creative firm we also produce our own bespoke furniture lines, customised to suit each project.


Over and above this we are also creators and coordinators of extraordinary events and lifestyle celebrations.

Ferdinand Viljoen : Director / Change Agent - METAMORPHOSIS JHB

Craig K. Whitehead is the most talented designer and decorator in town. A dream to deal with. Very easy to communicate via what's app/email and phone calls. Lots of pictures, ideas and input were shared through these channels and almost easier to convey what I wanted than a face to face meeting where only verbal communication takes place. So if you need any assistance I highly recommend you calling him. Thank you so much Craig !
