shower outside corner detail

hi all.
i'm tiling a new shower stall.

the door jambs will be tiled, but the outer wall where a casing would normally be will be drywalled.
i'm trying to figure out a nice way of ending the tile so as to cover the edge of the adjoining drywall and also the edge of the tile.

i'm looking at maybe a 1X1 "pencil" molding, or even a larger chair rail to act as a sort of casing.

it seems that in either case, the ti le would have to cantilever out 1/2" from the durock to be able to cover the edge of the drywall, eh?

or, i could durock the casing, smack on a big chair rail which would cover the drywall and edge of the tile, but again, the tile would have to stick out unsupported 1/2".

another idea is to simply stick in a piece of WOOD quarter round between each element. the tile quarter is flat on the bottom, making this impossible.

any ideas?

tiles will be 3X6 tumbled travertine with no bullnose.


attached is a crude sketch.
