Trim Entryway With No Jam

I have an entryway from a hallway to the living room and it is all drywalled. Being drywalled, it has no door jams to offset the trim. I would like to trim out the living room side of the entryway but do not know how to go about it. Can I just put the trim flush? I know the offset is used because you can almost never get trim perfectly flush and even if you do, it might not stay that way.

A pic will probably help us better understand and help you find a solution - http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

Picture

This is not the actual picture of my entryway, but the walls are the same. How do I add trim to the side facing the camera? The first obstacle is the rounded corners and the second is that the only way I have ever known how to trim is to set the trim like 1/4 inch back which cannot be done here. Thanks.

You only want to put casing on one side of the doorway?

IMO, don't do it unless you remove corner bead from the perimeter of both sides, add a jamb, and case both sides.

Plus you would have to remove the baseboards, install the trim, cut the bases and reinstall.
And there's steel outside corners over that sheetrock that's going to cause the casing to not lay flat and may cause the drywall compound to crack when your trying to nail it or bend the nails.

That's corner bead, and that's why XSleeper said to remove it.
