A virtual tour of the Parklands Duplex Show Apartment

Take a virtual step inside L&Q’s brand new show home at Parklands, Barking Riverside – a spacious two bedroom duplex apartment spanning 1,163 sq ft, with a private front patio and rear terrace, and direct access on to a large communal garden.


The natural heart of any home, the open-plan kitchen/dining room has been designed with entertaining in mind. Grey walls match the contemporary kitchen cabinetry, complemented by warm blues and greens. With ample space for a six seater dining table, the brilliantly high ceilings and oversized windows make the room especially airy and bright, with custom-made curtains hanging from tracks mounted on the ceiling giving the room a luxe finish. Integrated Zanussi appliances encourage residents to test their cooking skills using high specification kitchen equipment, with stylish downlighters brightening the top quality worktops. 

Living Room

Travelling up the spacious staircase, positioned on the first floor and mirroring the design of a traditional townhouse, the show home has a dedicated living room – an unusual luxury in a two-bedroom apartment. Evoking a sense of a calm and tranquillity, the room features a mix of soft greens and greys, providing a neutral backdrop for statement wood pieces. A bespoke wooden cabinet features undulating doors in a mismatch of wood grains, forming the focal point of the room, whilst side tables have been created using a mix of tree branches. A range of house plants and artworks continue the nature theme, reflecting the importance of ecology at Barking Riverside.

Master Bedroom

A geometric wallpaper in a range of pastel colours provides the inspiration for the master bedroom, with lilacs, teals and mustard yellows featuring across the furnishings. Layering the art-deco pattern with a variety of textures and textiles, the space has a modern, bright feel, with light wood furniture that enhances the Scandi palette. Within the master bedroom, an ensuite bathroom features a walk-in shower, contemporary wall and floor tiles, and chrome accessories, creating the perfect oasis within the suite.

Guest Bedroom

The large guest bedroom has an elegant, opulent feel, using rich greens, velvets and dark wood furniture. A textured wallpaper features a tessellating diamond pattern in weaved gold fabric – a pattern which is mimicked in the cushions and armchair, tying the room together. Two floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with natural light, bouncing off the mirrored doors on the fitted wardrobe.

Family bathroom

Ideal for creating your own mini spa space within your home, the family bathroom has a bathtub with dual shower head, integrated sink with wall-mounted mirror, and modern white sanitaryware. Wall art brings a sense of glamour to the space, alongside planting and luxe bathroom accessories.
