How would you duplicate the tone of this picture

Do you know of an action that will get you close to this color? I really like it. My granddaughter showed it to me and I would like to see how close I can get or how close you can and suggestions?

Thanks

Re: How would you duplicate the tone of this pictu

can you give us sample image to work with? because a different image might need a different way to work.
But you can try an adjustment layer of Black & White, use Yellow Filter, check the TINT option with color #bfb1a3

Re: How would you duplicate the tone of this pictu

Andy is right in haveing to convert to B&W first, but the coloring method can be done in many many ways. Below is just another way of doing things.
  1. convert to B&W (new adjustment layer), start with pressing auto
  2. Fill a new layer with color #b19f95
  3. Set the color layer to color blending
  4. play with B&W sliders to taste

Hope it helps,
-Keven

Edit* to add the color #, double click on the foreground color then enter # where the arrow is in the below picture.
