I think you're going to need to get yours hands dirty on this one - because of the similarity in colour between the tablecloth and the runner (not to mention that the background is white), the auto adjustments available to you (Image > adjustments) won't help. Personally, I'd carefully mask the left and right areas of tablecloth and the runner area separately (using the pen tool), create new fill layers, and use the layers' blend modes to colourise the image. It won't look perfect (as in reality the colours would reflect light differently to the source) but it's a start.

Here's the result of 2 minutes' work...
