I just love this kitchen and the flooring. Thinking of this tile for our bathrooms which adjoin oak floors in the hall...
I traced the picture to an article about the kitchen: "Dice que las baldosas se las trajo de Francia."
The tiles were brought from France. So search for French hexagon terracotta tiles and see what comes up.
It's from Ellen Pompeo's house in Hollywood in Elle Decor (link below)
"The kitchen features plenty of open shelving, industrial-style stainless-steel appliances, and terra-cotta floor tiles imported from France."

I love antique French tile. We found 6" hex tile from Arto Tile for our kitchen and love it. They are made in California and carry lots of shapes and colors.

These folks seem to have tiles in that look -- and check the overstock page!

You could check out Ann Sacks.
I actually googled and then found a link to a place in the UK that sells salvaged tiles from a 17th century French chateau. No prices, although they sell a sample for 5 British pounds....
Wow - thank you for all the replies! Now I have fodder for sleuthing.
I'll take the 17th century chateau tiles please :) :) :)
1929Spanish - your kitchen is beautiful! I am planning a very similar colour for my cabinet fronts - F&B Hardwick White, and I am glad to see how great it looks.
I didn't post the link because I figured they'd cost as much as a fifth of the chateau. However, I was wrong, we're talking 18th and 19th century. See below.

Wow nosoccermom. We truly live in an amazing world. Those tiles are lovely.
And 1929Spanish, Arto does indeed have such similar variegated hex tiles like in my inspiration photo!
I liked the idea of variegated tile because it would "bridge" nicely with the colour of the adjacent oak, without being too "matchy-matchy". I also really like these:
Thanks for the compliment. Our cabinets are Omega Dynasty in Pesto.
Glad you found some tile that worked. We were going for a saturated color, vut they have many to choose from. Also, they will send you samples before you order.
An update. These ARTO tiles are CAN$18.99/ft (not installed) - yikes! - and available by special order at a local store. The store rep said that they are very durable, thicker than average floor tiles, need to be sealed, and are designed to age - i.e. not stay looking pristine but rather show some wear over time.

Yikes! Pretty, but got me thinking about this thread:

Look at Ann Sacks under their "Basics"- Hacienda. The tile like this starts at about $4.00 a square foot. Of course the most colorful, like you are showing is in the highest price point which I don't know.
Yeah, I can understand the Saltillo thread. I am thinking about this for two tiny bathrooms though, not a large area.
Palimpsest, I'll check that out. I was thinking of a non-traditional colourway though, because I don't live in the SouthWest or a warm climate so I didn't want to strongly reference that look. That's why I like the colours that I posted about.
Love those floors! Hope you can find some.
Arto has three color/price ranges. Our color (desert) happened to fall in the lowest price range at $5.00/sq ft., but we're in So Cal near their factory. Get a copy of their catalog ao you can study the color options.
The tiles are thicker and uneven because they are handmade. Hopefully you can find something that works out.
Edit: they always have a long lead time because they custom make each order. I don't think they keep much stock on hand. Somewhere on their site, they have some existing stock for sale. I'll see if I ca find the link to the place on the site.
