My favourite room: From Buenos Aires to Waterford, how life and love have inspired Maria Ines Dawney’s interior design choices


While the colour of the front door is something most of us agonise over when decorating our homes, visitors often don’t even notice it. If one is left waiting for a knock to be answered, it’s the outside one turns to, and in the case of the home of Maria Ines Dawnay in Co Waterford, the exterior is wonderful – acres of rolling lawns and mature trees surround her stunning stand-alone Georgian-style home.

owever, the colour of Maria Ines’s front door is particularly striking and it transpires it was chosen for a very romantic reason – it’s the colour of the uniform her late husband, Major Hugh Dawnay, was wearing when this bubbly Argentinian first clapped eyes on the dashing officer of the British Army. His regiment was the 10th Hussars.

That was in the early 1970s, and since then, Maria Ines has lived in Waterford. For much of their marriage, the couple lived in a magnificent period mansion called Whitfield Court, her beloved Hugh’s ancestral home. Hugh ran a large farm and a world-renowned polo school there, and as well as looking after their two children, Sebastian and David, who are both now grown up, Maria Ines herself operated the house as a Hidden Ireland for paying guests.
