Yes, you can change the default options for Plot or other functions:

oldPlotOptions = Options[Plot] (* save the original settings *)

SetOptions[Plot, PlotStyle -> Red]

Plot[{Sin[x], Cos[x]}, {x,0,10}] (* both curves are red now *)

SetOptions[Plot, oldPlotOptions] (* restore original settings *)
