How do I change the background colour of CKEditor from white to blue.

If I change the background-color of the body tag in the contents.css located in the ckediter folder it changes the color as required, but I am trying to change the color of just one of instance of CKEditor not both, is this possible?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
