With spring on the horizon and brands releasing their new offerings for the season, there's no shortage of fresh décor to drool over. At the MyDomaine headquarters, this is one of our favorite times of the year. After a long winter spent collecting heavy throw blankets and cozy rugs, it's finally time to store away seasonal necessities and focus on beautiful new pieces that will help you and your home transition from winter to summer.

As someone who spends the better part of my working hours scouring the pages of home décor websites for their latest offerings, newest collections, and fresh collaborations, I've recently come across countless heart-stopping pieces featuring the spring trends you'll want to know about this year. Think muted pastel colors, bohemian rattan details, fashion-forward corduroy materials, vintage-inspired elements, and handcrafted ceramics.

Ahead, shop 17 undeniably cool home décor finds that stopped me in my tracks this month.

Anthropologie Mia Vase
Anthropologie Mia Vase $16.00

While pastel colors for spring may conjure up visions of Miranda Priestly uttering the immortal phrase: "Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking." However, these matte earthenware vases from Anthropologie manage to feel entirely original with minimalistic muted shades of lilac, sky blue, and turquoise.

CB2 Fan Natural Rattan Room Divider
CB2 Fan Natural Rattan Room Divider $599.00

Rattan is the gift that keeps on giving. The material was on the rise as a home décor trend last year and it continues to permeate even the most contemporary collections. This room divider displays how the element can be used in a modern way.

Leanne Ford for Project 62 Metal Dome Pendant Lamp
Leanne Ford for Project 62 Metal Dome Pendant Lamp $150.00

This striking pendant lamp first caught my attention when Target initially released its collection of lighting created by interior designer Leanne Ford for the retailer's in-house brand Project 62. It looks far more expensive than it actually is.

West Elm Dried Hardy Pampas Grass
West Elm Dried Hardy Pampas Grass $19.00

The pampas grass trend has been making its way into the mainstream since last fall and its allure doesn't show signs of slowing down. Dried or fresh pampas grass continues to be a simple way to make any space feel more elegant and just plain cool.

Anthropologie Corbyn Accent Chair
Anthropologie Corbyn Accent Chair $698.00

This accent chair from Anthropologie looks inspired by mid-century modern pieces. It features a kiln-dried hardwood frame in an ash wood finish and a hair-on-hide leather back cushion for a striking effect. 

H&M Corduroy Cushion Cover
H&M Corduroy Cushion Cover $13.00

The combination of corduroy material paired with a sky blue color makes this simple throw pillow from H&M utterly cool. It's got a touch of high-fashion influence with a fresh color that's fitting for spring.

Anthropologie Irving Bookcase
Anthropologie Irving Bookcase $798.00

It's both the shape and material of this bookshelf that garners attention. The piece has an unusual circular shape made of natural rattan. Although the bookshelf alone is eye-catching, you can use it to display books, photographs, and other small objects in the living room or even a bedroom.

West Elm Eden Cross Base Standing Planter
West Elm Eden Cross Base Standing Planter $159.00

Another trend of 2018, terra cotta, is catapulted into spring in the form of this standing planter. The pot features the instantly recognizable shade of orange while a white cross base gives the item a welcome lift.

CB2 3-Piece Magma Metal Nesting Table Set
CB2 3-Piece Magma Metal Nesting Table Set $399.00

This metal nesting table set is fitting for rooms both large and small thanks to its versatility. The rustic bronze- and silver-plated material of the tables give them a worn, vintage feel.

H&M Metal Candelstick
H&M Metal Candelstick $10.00

Simple and minimal, this metal candlestick from H&M would look chic on a coffee table or side table. Use it to set the mood with an elegant taper candle.

CB2 Wash Grey Watercolor Rug
CB2 Wash Grey Watercolor Rug $199.00

While you might not associate spring home décor with a dark gray rug, this piece is too cool not to take note of. It features a stunning watercolor effect, bringing multiple shades of gray together in a way that mimics a painting.

Leanne Ford for Project 62 Natural Woven Ambient Floor Lamp
Leanne Ford for Project 62 Natural Woven Ambient Floor Lamp $90.00

Another find from Target's recent collaboration with Leanne Ford, this natural woven lamp could work in all types of spaces, from minimal and Scandinavian to bohemian and contemporary. It's far more interesting than a traditional floor lamp and will create a warm light for your entire room.

CB2 Andes Rectangular Ceramic Vase
CB2 Andes Rectangular Ceramic Vase $30.00

As far as vases go, this rectangular ceramic number is about as cool as they come. The minimalistic shape feels modern and revolutionary while the ceramic material creates a textured vessel ready to hold lively botanicals.

CB2 Iris Black Large Rattan Mirror
CB2 Iris Black Large Rattan Mirror $299.00

Not all rattan comes in a natural brown hue. This art deco-inspired piece combines rounded shapes with a rich, black rattan material to surround an otherwise ordinary rectangular wall mirror.

H&M Jacquard-Patterned Cotton Rug
H&M Jacquard-Patterned Cotton Rug $129.00

This jacquard-patterned rug features a striking design in neutral shades of cream and beige. Style it in the living room extending out from beneath a sofa or even in a dining room underneath the table.

West Elm Ease Roundabout Magazine Rack
West Elm Ease Roundabout Magazine Rack $50.00

Design-forward individuals with an unphased penchant for print magazines will appreciate this unique magazine rack featuring a circular frame. It will look as if the piece is defying gravity just by standing up and holding your treasured reading material.

H&M Window-Shaped Mirror
H&M Window-Shaped Mirror $35.00

This window-shaped mirror looks reminiscent of both a church stained glass window and European architectural details. Use it to infuse any room with light and to create the illusion of more space.
