tile to carpet transition

Tile to carpet transition
I am installing tile in a master bath. There is a wall with an entryway (no door) separating the bath from the bedroom. The tile will meet carpet in the entryway. The new carpet was installed last year longer than normal into the bathroom with the intent of installing tile later.
Where in the entryway is considered the "standard" point where the carpet should meet the tile?...Once again, there is no door.
I would like a direct carpet to tile transition with no "z" bars or any other kind of connecting medium.

The tile should extend 1/3 of the way into the doorway. You can put tackstrip next to the tile like you would a wall and tuck it in.
