Indeed you are right - the provided solution colors the whole CartesianChart. What you need is a PlotAreaStyle. However using it won't make the Gridlines visible due to a bug in the control. I'm copying here my answer from the support thread you opened on the same topic which should shed some light on why this happens and what is the workaround.
The current implementation of RadChartView requires the ZIndex of the CartesianChartGrid to be -1. The plot area has a ZIndex of 0 and this leads to the chart grid not being visible. We confirm that this is a bug in the control. A simple work-around would be, as you suggested, to set the ZIndex of the plot area to -1:
