Transition corner from tile to sheetrock

I am towards the end of adding a bathroom to my basement and I am struggling with how to finish the corners where the shower travertine tile and the sheet rock meet. Part of my challenge is I have already installed the tile and sheetrock and did not plan the final details of how I was going to finish the corner.

Any suggestions on how to finish the corner?

the tile and the sheetrock meet on a corner. Currently the sheetrock meets the backer board for the tile and the tile meets the back of the sheetrock ... so I don't really have a corner. I tried to make a diagram of the situation below.

(the "O"s are the interior of the wall)

Frankly, I didn't understand your diagram.

But if you can't finish the corner in a nice looking manner, you can use trim tiles to cover any imperfection.

To get some ideas, check pictures in tile remodeling articles.
