Hmm, it's not a popular site yet so I'd suggest get some substantial content before thinking of improving the usability and design. Mediawiki is an outstanding wiki system and I believe the usability is already top-notch.
If you don't know design at all, sticking to simple white style is your best bet. Otherwise, it'd make you look stupid unless you have lots of bucks to spend.
