Tiling advice - not the how-to, the design...

I am getting ready to remodel the bathroom. I have a 2 piece remodeline tub/shower fiberglass unit. Its in great shape. I think I'll keep that but I do want to tile around the surround. Right now its greenboard and paint. I want as you can see from the pictures, I'm a little unsure of how to go about it. I want to tile around above the surround, but when I come to the sides, if I run down the wall with bullnose, what do I do to meet up with the baseboards that I will install. I wasn't going to tile the wall where the little tiles are now at all, so I was planning on baseboards.

Go to a real tile store that sells quality tiles and they will have all these transition pieces you need. Look at something like Daltile. Also do not tile over the green sheetrock. This was an old attempt at water resistant drywall, that has since been discontinued due to it not working.
