Swedish term or phrase: mysbelysning
How would you translate the term "mysbelysning"?

For example, in an advertisement from an electricity provider, it talks about how customers can "läsa bok i mysbelysning", among other things.

I have a loose sense of what it refers to, but an actual definition of the term would still be preferable. :)

Thanks

agree  Paul Armitage: Agree, but should mention that mood lighting where I am tends to mean lights that cast changeable colours (e.g., across walls, also in the cabins of modern aircraft), as opposed to soft/cozy lighting which just gives a pleasant glow.
