Suggestions to transition this new wall

I installed a door in the back of the house going to the garage. It is actually in an entryway to the basement (stairs go down to the right). The pic shows the sheetrocked wall that I built and added framing so the wall is now flush with the basement wall below (sr sits on top of concrete wall). I now have this wall that's proud about 6" from the upstairs wall next to the door. One person told me just to box it in using sr, but I'm wondering if there's a more elegant way to transition from this added wall to the existing wall up to the door? The door frame is short because the wall was thicker than normal in an older home, so that's another issue I need to address.

I would finish it out with drywall. To make it fancier iw put a round corner bead on it.First picture is what I am talking about

I agree, drywall and corner bead is needed. Is there a reason the new wall stops short? It might look better if the wall extended out to the return wall from the door.

If you don't like the square corner, frame it back at a 45 to ease the transition.

reason it stops short is the 8' point. I didn't want to get too close to the doorway.
