[SOLVED] Changing the Post CONTAINER color changes text color, NOT background color

My site has an all white (#ffffff) background, no distinction between the page body container and the outside background.

Wanted to make the body container stand out, as a centered "box" laying on top the outside area, so I went into Ato>Style Posts & Pages>Post Container and added the line color: #D9E4D8; below the default margin line. Saved and viewed pages, but what changed was the color of the text, NOT the color of the background behind the text. What am I doing wrong, what should I be putting in there?

site is: www.weavesfire.com, using latest version of Atahuapla

Thanks Juggle. I actually tried background color, but left out the hyphen
