website inspiration

I'm working on my website and I'm trying to get some inspiration. The Bungaloo, Hel Looks, Lori Joy Smith's and Jessica Hische's websites. Apparently I'm attracted to a white square on a gray patterned background. Most of the artist websites were pretty straightforward and plain, which makes sense to not distract from the work.
