Coastal design question-

We have new natural maple cabinets and are not interested in doing a kitchen remodel to acheive coastal style. Can I keep the natural wood and still have a coastal vibe?

Thank you for any help you can offer!

I love coastal style however as much as I love the natural light color sofas favored in coastal style I would never buy one. I holiday let my riverfront home and light colored linen sofas even with slip covers would be a big problem. Iiving with hubby, son and a dog in our home I steer clear of light colored soft furnishings.
