How much green is too much green?

Would it be weird if I painted three out of five upstairs rooms the same soft green color, if they were given different treatments?

The green in question is a light, soft green. The rooms and the treatments would be:
A kid's bedroom with green walls, and layers of orange and yellow and turquoise through bedding and furniture (it probably sounds horrible, but she's four, and I think we'd wind up with a fun court-jesterish look.)
A small bathroom with light green walls, dark brown shower curtain and towels, a few small plants with dark green leaves (like a few snake plants or something.)
A guest bedroom with light green walls with purple accents, like a quilt, curtains, whatever. Probably some white.
The other two rooms are going to be offices but don't have any decor or plan to them other than that.
This is just coincidence -- I'm actually not intentionally aiming to use gallons and gallons of this green, but it wouldn't be an inconvenient thing, either.
So would this look lazy? Weird? Or would it even be noticeable to anyone else? Am I over-thinking this or under-thinking it?
