well you shouldn't use omni's really for this task. use area lights instead, the same way you'd use a portal. you make an area light that fits the window or sits outside and casts a gentle light and has area shadows into the room. the light color shoudl be your diffuse general color as the prupose of these lights is to give a general effect.
