I usually use a tungsten lamp for the sun but set the camera to daylight balance and fill with dim soft daylight, sometimes gelled even bluer for that warm sun / cool shadows look.
Not knowing the size of the room, the distance from the window to the bed and the space outside the window, it's hard to recommend what lamp to use for the sun. If it can be more spotty, then you might be able to get away with a 1.2K tungsten PAR "firestarter" (very narrow spot) outside the window, just don't melt anything and watch the heat on the glass, keep it back a bit. Otherwise, I'd tend to go for a 5K tungsten par with a medium lens if I want to fill a bigger window but still have some punch, while backing up the light for more sharpness. A 2K tungsten fresnel might work. For the soft cool fill, I'd tend to use daylight Kinos with 216 on the units.

Along with what David said, consider a little haze in the air, or using a filter that replicates that. Nothing says morning to me in a film like some dust in the air catching the sunrays.
