    add this rule declaration to your child theme and you'll good to go :-)

    .widget-area {
    background: #EBEEF1;
    }

    tell me how it worked out! :-)

    Wow I've been quite confused or something sorry about that! Could you specify a little bit that what "widget area" you want to change the background? I mean in the footer or in the social icons area or somewhere else? :-)

    you'll notice the area in the sidebar is a different shade of grey

    I've done it! I just added !important. Could you help me with something else?

    Do you have a Child Theme? If not then the code you inserted to styles.css will be overwritten when you update your theme. If you don't have it I highly recommend doing it since you're interested doing other stuff also :-) Here is nice tutorial for creating a child theme its really not complicated :-)

    And yes sure I can try to help you with other stuff also :-)
