I think you could get close by using a curves layer and reducing the contrast of each channel R, G, and B individually and to taste ie. Raise the black point and lower the white point in the vertical plane for each channel and if nec. do the same for the combined RGB.

Try this find a white pt most likely in the floor board of your reference image in your image create a curves adj layer double click the white pt eye dropper now select the floor board white in ref image to set it. Now back in your image use the white pt to select the chair now lower opacity to taste. Next add a curves layer and drag the black pt straight up to add haze and lower contrast.

Sorry that I can not give an exact answer right now, but I can give you some pointers. There are a lot of free PS actions on deviantart that will do this. Search for retro action and download a few and try. There is many other ways to achieve this look, so try some of the actions and adjust one of them to your need.

Thought that I had better try after opening my mouth

Attached is, unless I am missing something, reasonably close I hope to the look you are after. TBH I spent next to no time on this just adjusted the curves to approximate the Blush image. Then added a layer for D&B and just dodged (clumsy and heavy handed!) to add a little brightness to highlights.

If this is anywhere near I am sure that you will improve on my efforts by taking more time and care

EDIT: Just realised something........You do own the copyright to this image i.e. it is your original work. If not then it should be deleted
