I keep my violin hanging on the wall in the dining room where I have access to my music stand and my trusty computer. The bow hangs with it. I keep my case nearby on top of our giant dog crate in the living room so that I can easily get ready to go to my class once a week. The violin stays in tune pretty well so I am guessing the humidity in the house is fairly okay? If I did not work so many hours I would allow myself the time to put it away properly but one must pick and choose at this point in life.
