Perhaps I am missing something, but this seems like a solid color (#f9f1e4). If so, are you limited to his color and looking for texture effects, or is the sky the limit as to what you can do for a background?

You can try using the Photoshop patterns to apply a texture. Just experiment with the cropping of the image to get it to repeat correctly. It is important that the outside edges are the same color if you want to have a seamless repeating image.Here are a few examples using the default Photoshop textures.

The last one isn't a standard filter, but you can find more Photoshop filter by Googling free PS textures/Patterns. You will still have to experiment with hot to make them repeat with correct cropping, but it will save you some time.

One tip about getting to crazy with the background image. Be careful when designing a b-ground image for the web. While it may look cool, it needs to compliment the website, not dominate it.
Good Luck,
