Ferns grow in the forest undergrowth...think a moist environment and dappled sunlight. The best place for your Boston Fern is somewhere in indirect bright light - anywhere in a bright coolish room away from the harsh sunlight of the window.
Boston Ferns need to be kept moist, so check the soil moisture regularly, ensuring it never dries out. It can be tricky to get to the soil on a lush full Boston fern but by using a self-watering pot you can water via the bottom reservoir allowing your fern to soak up the water. Water less during the winter, but still watch out for the soil to never go completely dry.
Since Boston ferns come from tropical places, they are used to living in high humidity. If you have a bright bathroom, your Boston fern will be very happy there. The steam from the shower will provide your plant with the humidity it loves.
