I know it's never a good idea to copy content from other sites, but what about site design? Say you see a lovely design for a site, is it alright to copy it and use it on your site?

If you are referring to the site 'layout" then that should be okay. Many sites use the same layout or template. If you are referring to the graphics, then that is covered under the copyright notice which should be visible on the website.

Wordpress has a lot of free templates so I just use those, and there are lots of free designs online. If its a site someone's built does it matter if its creative commons before you use it, or do you use it anyway?

I try to build unique websites. That's why clients hire me. And in order to build and execute something unique, things have to be good for sure. I am not aware of some of the ready to use templates which are good for all time use. So I try to design my own way around it. So it can be good to have such templates designed properly. Copying site design is not good in long term strategy.
