Lavender and green look lovely together.
|Lavender and Green Arthur Wesley Dow, 1912, Dayton Art Institute|
Almost universally, the combination strikes a pleasing cord. Little girls certainly love the combination.
However, in design to avoid a "princess" effect, I would advise going long on the green and short on the lavender. Here are two photos of interior designs where the combination is pleasing. In the first photo, neutrals predominate with the green accents in about a 4 to 1 ratio with the lavender.
One of the authors of Material Girls blog, Rebecca Soskin says, "The bones of the room are rather neutral but the pops of lavender and lime green give it that special edge."
This nursery chair and lavender pillows illustrates the same proportions.

Nobody combines lavender and green better than Phoebe Howard. She chooses a neutral background interrupted by one of the many shades of green, then accents with a lovely lavender canvas.
Maybe this combination is why I enjoy my a mid afternoon cup of tea out of this particular cup. Care to join me?
