iluminados por una claridad

Context:

Estuvo largo rato entretenida así, paseando la mirada por el techo, por las paredes y por el suelo como si estuviesen iluminados por una claridad.

as if lit up by a certain luminosity

My comment:

I am trying to introduce a certain note of increased intensity by using a learned word "luminosity".The naive young lady would be experiencing a degree of tension in the circumstances.
