The only reason I didn't suggest Texas Method / Bill Starr / Madcow is because of this:

"I also stopped enjoying it and want to focus on both gaining strength AND bodybuilding esk training."

Not sure if some other posters might have missed that bit...?

I hurt myself really badly because I didn't evolve from Starting Strength when I should of. It's a great routine, but I think if one is going to push it too far they need a coach there watching them and telling them when to back off, when form is breaking down, etc. And that is simply not an option for 99% of us.
I never used the texas method, but it seems like a very prudent next step. You could also do Madcow 5x5. I did that routine, it was good, although when I compare it to the texas method I will admit the texas method is more appealing on paper.
If you are interested in a more "bodybuilder" type approach you could try a 3 day a week Heavy/Light/Medium full body. I actually have one specifically in mind if you are interested in the link.

Forget Steroids: 5 Full Body Workouts For Serious Gains | Muscle & Strength
The workout I am referring to is the second workout described in the article linked above, "The 20 Rep Squat HLM Full Body Workout". I've done it and I thought it was a great approach. There are also some other good full body routines in that article.
Let me know if you have any questions.

***edit**
To be honest, as I look at the routine, I kind of would like to do it again!

I like the sound of that one, too. Widow makers on squats are brutal.
