You may wanna search for “user interface design” or something like that to get some helpful inspiration. Also, look at the design of Adobe’s current CS3 applications for some modern design approaches as this grey Windows Classic look and feel is kinda boring since “Web 2.0”.

Other sites that might be inspirational are:

http://www.webdesignfromscratch.com/web-2.0-design-style-guide.cfm – although this is about website design some elements and techniques might apply to UI design, too
http://www.pixelmator.com/ – beautiful user interface

Some JavaScript/AJAX (moo.fx (http://moofx.mad4milk.net/), scriptaculous (http://script.aculo.us/)) for neat effects might enhance functionality as well.

And regarding that side panel (I suppose you are talking about that): you wouldn’t set that up as form/select box, I guess. With CSS you can style HTML in any way you want, and the stuff on the left would probably be a list of links or something like that. But we would have to know how your system works to determine what’s the right approach.

Just now, while working with it, I noticed another good site that might inspire you: Google Docs & Spreadsheets (http://docs.google.com/). Pretty neat application.
