An Old-Fashioned Family Business


Colonial Designs - Louisville, KYColonial Designs was founded by Ann and Maurice Brotzge on March 23, 1951 as a full service florist. Ann had worked as a designer at Harpers flower shop in Atlanta, Georgia as a young girl and was forever hooked on flowers and their beauty.

This was a true “Mom and Pop” operation. The first location was on West Broadway where the shop was in the front and their home was in the back. The Brotzge children literally grew up in the business.

In 1963, Colonial moved to its present location at 3712 Lexington Road. Over the years the shop has expanded and developed in size and inventory. Colonial now carries a full line home interior items such as upholstered and wood furniture, lamps, pictures, and mirrors. They also carry a fashion clothing line, jewelry, handbags, and many unique gifts. Along with fresh flowers, silk and dried floral arrangements are also available.

Although Ann still comes in, three of their five children are now running the shop, Martha Weinert, Terry Dayton, and Joe Brotzge. A granddaughter, Amy Moyer is also a valuable part of this tightknit family business.

A friendly neighborhood shop where you can meet friends, touch and measure home accessories,
find that perfect gift, and enjoy a REAL(not online) shopping experience.
