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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
