Vaulted ceiling crown molding with adjacent room


Greetings. I am wanting to install some crown molding in our home but have some weird ceiling intersections that I need some help with. At this time, I do not have any photos, but will try to describe this a best as I can...

Our house has a very open floor plan. The living room is vaulted, with an adjacent dining room that has a standard horizontal ceiling, and no doorway (almost like it's one room with two ceilings). This creates an interesting area where the living room ceiling ends and the dining room ceiling begins. I have attached a photo and circled the intersection I am referring to. But, the exterior wall in the photo is recessed back when it enters the dining room, where mine remains flush.

I am assuming I will have to use some sort of "corner" block (even though the wall continues in line with no real corner) and continue the wall piece on the other side while turning the crown up in the vaulted ceiling (in essence, creating a 3 way corner where two of the corners continue in line).

Is any of this making sense? Thanks for any help you can provide!

I have another, nearly impossible corner between rooms, but will wait for that question until I get some pics on here.

Do you have trim around the opening between the living and dining room?

No, nothing yet.

Would you be opposed to lowering the height of the opening (assuming it is the same height as the dining room ceiling) to give room to put a case around it as well as run your crown molding?

Hard to see the small photo, but I have a wall that runs normal height, but continues into my vaulted family room. I simply cut the crown back and returned it into the wall. This is how all my crown terminates at the vaulted room, as well as the stairs to the second floor.
