How to finish the edge of these border tiles

Planning on tiling with a "border tile" along the top. It's an inset area with a sink, 2 internal corners and 2 exposed edges of the tiles.

I'm struggling to work out how to finish the exposed edges. I was planning on using white trim, but that doesn't look right continuing up to the border tile. If I stop the trim below the border tile, then I guess I could mitre the border tile to finish that, but the profile of it means I would have to set the rest of the tiles back from the edge of the wall.

Hopefully the photos help to dhow what I'm trying to say.

Any suggestions most welcome!!

Thanks in advance

mitre the border and stop the tiles back from the edge . There will still be a trim on them , and will show everyone how clever you are .
Is there not an ‘end border’ tile available in the range?

Hi Godwasaplasterer - thanks for the help, I've had a similar response from a post on another forum so going with basically what you have put.

There aren't any end border tiles in the range, but I've found some in a similar range which I'm now planning on using.

So the plan is to now mitre the border, set the main tiles back and then use the pencil border tile from the other range vertically, with no plastic trim, finished with silicon around all the edges.

The rest of the room so far(for context). Skirting to be added and toilet button being changed to match the rest of the brushed brass fittings:
