pecky cyprus?

We just bought a home with "pecky cyprus" tongue in groove wood panelling, and I think, with some care, it could look very good. Currently the wood is a bit drab - somewhat dry looking and dusty. What is the best way to clean and treat the panels so as to bring out the character of the wood and protect it long term? The room has a stone fireplace in it and will be used as a family room.

We have weathered and stained rough pecky cypress and heart pine barnboards in our A-frame home as kneewalls, boxed beams and a fireplace mantle.
With all of the rough surfaces, holes, etc., they both tend to collect dust and sometimes small spider webs.
We brush them with a whiskbroom or floor broom, and then vacuum them.
Our's are meant to look rough and rustic, but if you have smooth surface-planed pecky cypress, you might could spray the boards with a furniture polish and wipe it off to brighten them up, after vacuuming.
Good Luck!
