What’s it like being an NBA star living in Arizona? Architectural Digest’s latest celebrity home tour reveals Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker’s lifestyle in the Sonoran Desert.
In the 10-minute video, a barefoot Booker shows viewers around his single-story home, which boasts impressive views of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. His house, we learn, is outfitted with 12-foot-long sofas, a custom poker table, a floor-to-ceiling wine display, a massive pool and a garage for his car collection.
“I talk about having the team over a lot, and that was kind of my mindset around this house, is make a place that’s inviting and have areas where you can talk and chill with each other,” Booker says in the video.
Here’s what we learned about the NBA All-Star and his metro Phoenix home.
Devin Booker enjoys hosting his Suns teammates
Booker’s home, which he purchased in 2019, is where he enjoys hosting his family and friends. Of course, his accommodations must be fit for NBA players — literally.
He often has his Suns teammates over to watch sports and play games, he reveals in the house tour. The sectional sofa is sized accordingly.
“Everybody’s usually over 6-5, at least, so this couch fills up pretty quick,” he says.
The custom-built poker table also gets a lot of use. Games of Bourré carry over from the plane to Booker’s home, and players sometimes indulge in rounds of Uno and spades. He also has a separate game room with another large seating arrangement where they can play video games.
A fireplace adds to the homey atmosphere in the living room.
“Fireplaces get used more than you’d think in Arizona. The winters get cold,” he says.
There’s also a bar with “a lot of tequila” where he serves his guests. Notably, there are a couple bottles of girlfriend Kendall Jenner’s 818 Tequila.
Devin Booker is a fan of artist James Turrell
In 2020, Booker and Jenner — the youngest of the Kardashian sisters — took a road trip to northern Arizona. Turns out they were able to visit Roden Crater, a dormant crater near Flagstaff that artist James Turrell has been transforming into an observatory for more than 40 years, and “were astonished by the experience.”
Booker decided to purchase an LED wall sculpture by the artist that is now proudly displayed in his dining room.
“It’s one of my favorite parts of the home, having this beautiful piece of art that me and my guests can appreciate while enjoying a meal,” he told Architectural Digest.
“If you stare at it enough, it starts looking like a floating box,” he says in the video.
Turrell has fans among Kendall Jenner’s family. In 2019, her brother-in-law Kanye (“Ye”) West donated $10 million to the project. The site is also where West filmed his 2019 concert film “Jesus Is King.”
Booker had a bed custom-built for him
Booker doesn’t “do much in here but sleep,” he reveals in a tour of his bedroom. But not just any bed will do for a 6-foot-5 man.
The room’s biggest feature is his bed, which is in a league of its own.
“I’ve never had a bed this big in my life, but I got it custom-made,” Booker says.
Next, he reveals a walk-in closet that houses his sneaker collection — “I used to be a lot bigger sneakerhead than I am now” — which includes new and vintage shoes. His favorite? Converse.
Devin Booker’s favorite collector car
Asking Devin Booker which of his vintage cars is his favorite is “like picking your favorite child. You just don’t do that,” he says.
But of course he has a favorite. It’s Pretty Penny, the 1959 Chevrolet Impala convertible — his first purchase — that he drove to Game 1 of the NBA Finals last year.
“I’m a classic car collector. I think it’s a family tradition, for me, that I took on and honed in on,” he says.
In the garage portion of the tour, Booker points out his “daily” Buick Grand National that he drives, as well as the GNX version that mostly stays at home.
“Hopefully one day I’ll get a warehouse and expand even further.”
