Adding this to your CSS will give a background color to your textarea -
But if your adding text as content of your site, textarea is not how to do it. It may be best to wrap your text in p tags and put it in a containing div that could be positioned over the white space of your background image.
It could also be that you don't even need the containing div. I suppose it depends on how much text you have and how it's formatted.
