Looking at the Wordpress demo of this theme here, http://twentyfourteendemo.wordpress.com/

It looks like you should be able to find this CSS rule and change the background color:

body.custom-background {
   
}

Can you give us the URL of your site? It would be easier to find the correct rule.

My site is down for 24 hrs (out of my control)

#main,
.site-content .entry-header,
.site-content .entry-content,
.site-content .entry-summary,
.site-content .entry-meta,
.page-content .site-content .entry-content,
.site-content .entry-summary,
.page-content {
      background: #aa3636;
}

this works
