Kate Abney

Homes Editor, Southeast

Throughout her 12-year publishing career, Kate Abney has championed design professionals across the house-proud South, where elegant residences and a passion for entertaining have been known to set the tone for design preferences far beyond its borders. Equal parts writer and editor, Abney has held staff positions at Southern Accents, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and Modern Luxury magazines, and has penned articles for Better Homes & Gardens, Lonny, Southern Living, Atlanta magazine and more. Based in Atlanta, at the epicenter of the Luxe Southeast edition’s footprint, Abney relishes the way her role allows her to shine a spotlight on the worthy talents who help craft the very culture of this place–a close-knit community noted for its style and grace, a reverence for the past and a push toward progress.
