While it is not as soft as carpet hardwood is still a warm, welcoming feature when used as a floor surface in this room. Its natural beauty, durability, and ability to stand the test of time for both style and durability makes it a wonderful material for this serene and settled location.
Pets: If you have dogs, especially large dogs, then their nails are going to tend to scratch up hardwood flooring surfaces. This can be mitigated to some extent by keeping pet nails trimmed or simply banning them from the boudoir. For some people the tiny nicks and scars are actually desirable, giving the floor a sense of personality which shifts and evolves over time.
Noise: If it is a second or upper story room, then you may have to be concerned about the transmission of noise that can occur with hardwood flooring. Not only do you have to worry about creaks from shifting floorboards, but even the tapping of shoes as you walk across the floor can be translated as thumps to people dwelling down below.
The biggest problems will occur when the hardwood is installed incorrectly, causing the planks to shift and creak when walked across. You can also dampen the transmission of sound by having insulating underlayment installed beneath the hardwood. Another option is to deaden the noise from above by spreading area rugs and carpets throughout the room.
So, here are some unusual ideas. Maybe these are not really practical but I hope you will be inspired!
