WHEN GRAHAM KOSTIC MOVED IN with his partner, Fran Taglia, they knew the bachelor pad was going to need tweaking. “We wanted to make sure it was usable and had flow,” says Kostic, an art director for Rue La La. “But first, it had to look good.” By removing a wall, redoing the kitchen and bathroom, and adding unique touches, the pair created an artsy environment that matches their offbeat sense of humor. “We had a friend tell us our things are almost tacky, but we stop just before it gets there,” says Taglia.
