Soundproofing just my bed area?

I don't need to soundproof an entire room, just where I sleep. Basically, I want to construct a dark quiet box with the bottom side just big enough for my mattress.

I've done some searching online but everything I've found so far has been about soundproofing entire rooms. Also, most advice has been about keeping sound in (e.g., band practice area), whereas I want to keep sound out -- not sure if that makes a difference in the materials or techniques?
I know that air quality would be a concern in a small enclosed space so I figure I'll include a hole to insert the output side of my air filter to keep me supplied with fresh air and also provide some white noise.
I don't want to spend a fortune, but I might be able to afford to put some of the more expensive materials on just the ceiling side (where most of the noise is coming from) if that would work.
