Add Your Own Images as Background in Gmail
To add your favourite images or wallpapers as background in Gmail, first click on gear icon on the right and from the menu select Themes. Custom themes are available in two options, Light and Dark.
You can upload your own images from the computer, select one from your Google+ photos or simply paste any image URL. If you don’t have a particular image in mind, Google provides a rich, searchable gallery of photos to choose from.

Google is rolling this new feature out slowly, so it may be a few days before you get to choose your favorite cat picture as a background image in Gmail. [via Gmail blog]
