There is no face in emacs meant specifically for the echo area (and I  
presume you want to change that rather than just minibuffers).
There are several ways, but the easiest one would be:

- Turn off Autofaces
- use the "Background color" function to choose a color for the frame  
(rather than for the major mode)
- Turn Autofaces on again.

Hope that helps.
