I can invest in good quality neutral pieces of furniture and necessities and then sprinkle color and pattern throughout with textiles, small decorative items, pictures, and some re-vamped chairs and smaller pieces of furniture from the thrift store. Changing the look of one room will be as simple as buying a new throw blanket and adding a painted wooden chair from a thrift store. :)
I am especially drooling over the idea of having different colored//styled chairs in the dining room and open shelves in the kitchen to display some of my colorful dinnerware. AND the fact that Christmas and holiday decorations would look so perfect against a neutral palette. Love!
