How to determine a matching color code from a physical sample?

I need to make a restaurant menu design that matches restaurant wallpapers. For some reason my client cannot get color codes used in wallpaper, but he provided me with a sample. (see below)

How can I get the correct color codes from the wallpaper? (someone mentioned that there are scanners for this purpose, but I could not find any information regarding that)

Let me know if this question should be in another site.

Answer

Get your (or borrow a) Pantone swatch book and hold it up next to the wallpaper until you find a close match.
