Yes, it's a bit pop culture-ish. This certainly has a certain look to 
it, and to me it evokes a feeling of bubble gum - a bold idea.

Lukas: what do you want to convey with the look and the function of the 
site? Do you want playful? fun? professional? classy? irony?  poke fun 
at? mysterious? beautiful? stark/austere? bold? pastel? etc...

I really like the idea of using the star as a rotating menu selector. 
Unless someone has the time, it might be too much to do. But, it would 
be cool.

I think it's a given to use the idea of the "seaside" as the jumping off 
point of what the look would be. The seaside is fun and can be crowded 
but also serene. The logo can come later and a star is a very easy 
object to use, modify and extend. Why not use the colors of the seaside 
in pastels? Sand - near white sand with hints of yellow, browns and 
pastel blues. Fonts are not so hard to pick from because of the limited 
palette available to browsers.

some color ideas:
