Your company's Tumblr dashboard can't be viewed by your customers, so you can change the background to any color that you desire. You may want to change the color of the dashboard to your company's colors, or you may just be tired of looking at the blue background color that Tumblr uses by default. Regardless of the reason, the dashboard color can quickly be changed by accessing a special page on the Tumblr website that enables you to select any color for your dashboard background.

Log in to the Tumblr website and visit the dashboard customization page (see link in Resources). This page will enable you to change the dashboard theme, but will not change your blog's overall theme.

Click on the "Appearance" heading.

Click on the colored box next to "Background."

Select a new color for the background by clicking on the color you want to use on your dashboard. The color will automatically change in the preview pane.

Click on the green "Save" button.
