Size comes before shape. Shape comes before colour. Colour comes before material. big black wooden door big square wooden door square black wooden door or even lovely big black wooden door Generally, the most essential feature is mentioned last, and closest to the noun. This is often the material, such as wooden. The most objective adjective, such as lovely, comes first, and furthest from the noun.

it gets worse!!! imagine several adjectives in the same 'category' ... how to order them??? It was an imposing, forbidding, dread-inspiring door that confronted them - within category, order by degree?
