Any ideas for finishing touch on corner wall transition?? All ideas welcome!!!

I am stuck on an idea for the finishing touch on this corner wall of my kitchen. We put drywall over the existing walls so now there is a very unfinished look, especially when the unfinished drywall meets the new mosaic tile.

The total height from ceiling to floor molding is 8 feet. The width varies from 0.5 inches to 2 inches as you descend from the ceiling. (Sorry for the sideways pictures...I am new to this forum stuff!)

I am thinking something along the lines of a thin piece of molding to put here, but can't figure something out that really looks very good.

Can anybody help me with ideas for this?!? It's really the only unfinished touch on our recently renovated house!

Thanks!!!

Welcome to the forums!
That's a tough one, maybe some 1/4" drywall.

I would use plaster or a stiff joint compound to create a smooth finish there, and paint it to protect it from water. You can shape the material to be flat or curved or whatever shape works best for you. Just be sure to get the wall nice and wet before plastering over it, so that the mating surface won't get dried out before the material cures.
