Need help creating a coastal feel in a lindal cedar home!

Help! We’d like ro update my parents’ 1980s lindal cedar home that overlooks the bay—but we are at a loss and trying to stay within a reasonale price range for them. Sanding/restaining or painting the vaulted ceilings throughout was much more expensive than we thought and outside their budget We’d like to focus on installing hardwood throughout, removing the track lighting, changing the light fixtures, fan and blinds, updating the banister. We will eventually replace kitchen cabinets, etc We can

paint the walls a brighter/less yellow cream color They have gorgeous water front views and lots of colorful flowers and plants along the water—so we’d like it to feel less ”cabin. The furniture will also be replaced with something updated and lighter (eventually), but we need to do it in phases.

-Please suggest how we can modernize their dated home!

-What color floors would work? We dont care for slate because we want something ”airy” and coastal.

-Should the window trim be painted white or does it need to match the ceiling?

-Banister ideas to modernize things?

-What kind of furniture placement should we consider to optimize the views?

-How can we make this more coastal (not nautical) and less cabin?
