Magen Avaraham Orach Chaim 75:2 says that in her own house a lady does not have to cover her hair, however the Bais Shmuel in Even HaEzer 115:9 and the Bach says she does have to cover her hair. In Igros Moshe Even HoEzer 1:58, HaRav Moshe ZATZAL says that the Bach is talking about in a courtyard, however inside the home it is permitted.
As she can uncover it her house, then it would definately be permitted in the bedroom alone with her husband.
