how to make web application pretty?

Hey!
I am a web developer coming from the more back-end development side so design has never been my area. I did actually work with more web development years ago, but then someone always made the web designs so I could just make the mark up after the photoshop design.
Now I am creating my own web app and it is looking promising! However, I have no clue how to make a nice design. The functions are working as I want them, but the overall website looks not very cool. Front-end wise, am I using angular with bootstrap since that is what I know best, but even so I can’t get stuff look pretty. I want it to be really simple and easy to navigate which it kind of is but but colors and shadows etc is not the best looking. What do you guys do? I am thinking of hiring one UX designer on fiverr, is that like the normal route? Or do you actually do everything yourselves.
For example, how it looks now in my post list page:

It feels too dead, empty not welcoming. My app will have a lot of text from posts and I don’t plan on adding images any time soon.
