    Hi there,

    I quite like Design Meltdown: http://www.designmeltdown.com/archive.aspx
    It categorizes websites by colour style, website type, design theme and so on.
    It's a really handy resource when you are looking for inspiration.

    Design Meltdown is good! Also be sure to subscribe to the blog at Smashing Magazine: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/. Awesome articles and they periodically do "Top 100..." style posts. You can run a search through their huge archive for something like: "Best E-commerce Design" and get a ton of great articles and galleries. Get inspired then go make something great!

    I find that web design award sites are good places to get inspiration. I have no artistic ability. I lack the imagination and skill to make a pretty website. I can do basic business type websites. But I will never do anything artistic. Here's my list of inspiration sites.

    Plenty of beautiful designs to be found here: http://www.bestcssvault.com/
    http://www.cssbeauty.com/
    http://stylesinspiration.com/
    http://unmatchedstyle.com/gallery
    http://www.webdesign.org/web-design-...se/page-1.html
    http://designshack.net/gallery
    Already mentioned: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/
    http://www.webaward.org/winners.asp
    Find more designs on the left under Award -> Web Design -> Archive http://www.designfirms.org/awards/web/
    You can also look for more designs under Portolios.

    I noticed some of the sites doing a parrallax type of effect with images. This is interesting how the images move when you move your mouse:
    http://www.ispitcode.com/

    I had more web design award sites on my list. But some of them seem to have been abandoned since the last time I checked and are broken so I didn't include them.

    Another place to look for inspiration are template sites, commercial or free. Sites like TemplateMonster, ThemeForest, etc.
    http://www.templatemonster.com/
    http://themeforest.net/
    http://www.woothemes.com/
    http://www.freewebsitetemplates.com/
