With Amble, you can set your page to be boxed or full-width. With the full-width option, your main content will stretch edge-to-edge with no page background showing. With the boxed layout, you can centralize the main content while showing the page background colour (or image).

As referenced in the Customize your page background tutorial, using the boxed layout will allow you to see the page background.
