The grey background color is set in the bootstrap stylesheets linked at the top and is probably set to another element then div 'container'.

My advise is not to set CSS styles in the HTML tags (inline CSS), but use an external stylesheet.
The bootstrap.min.css is minified, so if the background color is set in this stylesheet, you will have to unminify the stylesheet first in order to edit it.

You can also override it in custom.css, but then you have to first look with the browsers' inbuild developer tools (right mouse click --> inspect element) on which element the grey background color is set.

How to unminify the stylesheet?

I have successfully change the text color, yet have not been able to change the background-color.

custom.css

.navbar{background-color: #AE5959;}

.navbar .brand{color: brown;}

.navbar .nav > .active > a{color: brown;}

.navbar .nav > li > a{color: brown;}

Add this somewhere in your stylesheet, or find it in the bootstrap CSS file (usually line 5 of bootstrap.min.css) and change it there.

.navbar-default {
    background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;
    border-color: #e7e7e7 !important;
}

Not sure why the link to the unminify tool gets a strikethrough and a message that it is a broken link.
It's a working link, so just follow it if you want to unminify!

Still remains the same.

custom.css

.navbar{background-color: #AE5959;}

.navbar .brand{color: brown;}

.navbar .nav > .active > a{color: brown; background-color: #AE5959; }

.navbar .nav > .active > a:hover{color: brown; background-color: #AE5959; }

.navbar .nav > li > a{color: brown;}

.navbar-default {
   background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;
   border-color: #e7e7e7 !important;
}

Well, I don't see a class 'navbar-default' assigned to the mark-up of that nav, so it's obvious it's not dong anything.

Use the browser developer tools to investigate (in the CSS panel) on which element the grey background-colour is set. Otherwise upload everything to a web server and give us a link, so we can investigate for you.
