Yes, you can easily change the background with the following options: in 6 steps:

1. Click the View tab. You see the View tab menu showing up.

2. Click the Slide Master icon in the Master Views group. PowerPoint changes the presentation editing view to slide master editing view.

3. Select the layout you want to change.

4. Check the "Background Style" menu in the "Background" group, then select "Format BackGround" in pulldown menu. You see the "Format Background" panel showing up with these options:

Fill
   o Solid fill
   o Gradient fill
   o Picture or texture fill
   o Pattern fill

Insert picture from file

5. Select "Solid fill" and change color to some light color as the background.

6. Inert a light-colored picture from a file and stretch it to fill the background.

7. Go back to the normal view.

Now all slides based this layout will have the new background.
