Instead of using images in backgrounds, why not try SVG repeated backgrounds?
One resource I recommend is: https://www.heropatterns.com/ Which has some nice patterns, depending on the theme of your site, I decided to choose the death star background.
The foreground color, which is the pattern, and the background color are not too contrasting and won’t distract from the main content
I have also used gradients as backgrounds and go for ones that are close together on the colour wheel so again it’s not a huge contrast. So from orange to red. https://uigradients.com/
