Transistion From Texture Plaster Ceiling to Newly Installed smooth Drywall Walls

I am about to replace some paneling in a room with drywall that has a plaster textured ceiling, and it is in good shape.

Looking for methods to tape and mud the corners between the ceiling and walls without covering any of the texture on the ceiling.

A few years ago I tried to repair a small area of the plaster texture in another area of the house and it did not match it up very well.

I did not want to use molding around the ceiling and would prefer to not smooth coat the ceiling.

any details or web references would be appreciated.

Butt the wall boards up tight and caulk it.
