change background color of code editor

Hi
Can you say where in phpStorm 8.0.3 I can change background color of code editor and Project Files area at left from code editor?

  Thanks!

File | Settings (Preferences for Mac OS) | Editor | Colors and Fonts | General | Default Text -> Background (you might need to "Save as" the default scheme before that), then choose the background color.

The Project Files area color is defined in IDE theme (Preferences/Appearance & Behavior/Appearance/Theme).
There are several ways to change it:
- 'Color Ide' plugin (https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/7055?pr=webstorm)
- assigning background color to certain file groups: Preferences/Appearance & Behavior/File Colors, press Add, choose the desired color and  scope, make sure to enable 'Enable file colors' and 'Use in project  view'.
- creating your own IDE theme.  IDE Themes are java Look&Feels. It's technically possible to  install any third-party L&F into JVM and use it in WebStorm ( see https://weblogs.java.net/blog/kirillcool/archive/2005/08/intellij_idea_5.html for instructions), but it will most likely look ugly and break the UI in many places.

Thanks, it helped, but only parted. Background color of code editor works only for blocks before <?php tab and after ?> tags. Within this block background color is still white.
Which items have I to alter apart from "Default Text" ?

Now in my editor blocks of HTML and php are in white background like :

I want to show all background in gray.
I tried to search in settings, but failed.

Current line color:
Preferences | Editor | Colors and Fonts |General, Caret row.
PHP variable has a cdefault background - the one chosen for default text. Variable on your screenshot seems to be highlighted because some warning is being shown for it
