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? [more inside]

Searching for a TARDIS blue...

Which of these blues is closest in colour to the blue on the exterior of the TARDIS? (Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, or Matt Smith era TARDIS.)

Visualizing home colors

So, it's time to paint my 100 year old house in Portland. How to choose colors? Are there any good online resources, in particular image galleries of homes painted specific colors? (i.e., "this 1925 craftsman is painted Benjamin Moore 741 Eggplant, with trim colors 219 Cream Soda and 987 Driftwood Sand") [more inside]

Oil painting advice requested

Artistic Metafilter users, I need your advice! I have recently acquired some oil paints and a brush, and am very much enjoying using them so far. I wonder if anyone has some advice about the non-obvious stuff regarding oil painting. I've already discovered some things that I didn't know before (i.e. a bit of red paint and an equally-sized bit of yellow don't make orange, they make slightly lighter red), but please post obvious things anyhow - I probably don't know about them. I (to my shame) have spent almost the entirety of my artistic life using Photoshop and Lightwave, so this is very fun and confusing territory for me.
