Nice question! Style is a very personal thing.

Try this: make an outline for a prospective artist, as though you were going to commission them to work for you. List sites that you like and point out what you like and don't like about them.  Get real specific, like you really don't want them to dish out the type of site you just can't stand.

After doing that, you should be able to re-create your own site by piecing together the good things that you have identified.

Do it in CSS. I see you like to use tables, but CSS truly gives you more control of your design, and site-wide changes in a few commands.

Experience is something you get just after you need it.

What I always do when designing a new site is I find an existing one I like. Create a screen shot of it, paste it in PhotoShop then "cut it up" into little pieces and save each piece individually as .JPG and then add them all together again only this time using HTML and these images.

Once you are done, start modifying the little images (adding your touches to it). In the end you will have a new cool looking site which won't be a rip off an existing one.  ;)
