Please see if this comes reasonably close to what you need. KSP is attached, you can find the colors there - and tweak them to your satisfaction.

Possible issues you may have faced:
1. Eyedropper color picking is imprecise when the source (your reference photo) has many colors close to each other.
2. If the reference you are color-picking from is open in a separate application, potentially in a different color space, what gets picked up is not what you saw. I added your reference as a frontplate to the KeyShot render and color-picked in-app.
3. Even with a good color pick, some manual tweaking is needed to get the perceived patterns to look similar to reference.
4. Organic and noise-based textures are difficult to achieve a perceptual match with.
5. Lighting. Of your render, as opposed to your reference.


Thank @Anindo Ghosh
I think import reference image into Keyshot is the most important step. As you said It help to pick precise color.
