Previous question was purely aesthetic, Pete. Did you ask it of Mrs. Pete? Only other opinion that really counts.

Not sure what you're asking about your inside corner.

I'm afraid I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to manage there, Pete...
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.

I apologize for the vague question. I will try to clear up what I am asking:

I'm not sure how to finish tiling up to the edge of this near corner on the plumbing wall (not the "inside corner" like I said before - my bad).

Thoughts I am having are "Do I tile right up to it? Do I need to go up to it and around it? I wasn't planning on tiling the perpendicular wall originally. What do the pros do to hide that tile edge if the tile ends going up to a corner like this?"

My wife has purchased Schluter Profile called Quadec, but when I search for images on how that is supposed to look, I shows that it is used as a corner where it is protruding out from the wall slightly with tile continuing onto the other/perpindicular wall behind the profile, making for a very nice corner.

like in this image

I initially thought I was supposed to use it just end the tile there and hide the unfinished tile edge which faces out into the bathroom. But the pictures I can find on the internet do not have it used in this manner.

So the equivalent of the above cross section on mine would look something like this:

So my question should have read "I have no idea how to finish this corner. I don't think this is how it is intended to be used. Am I even in the ballpark for tiling up to this corner?"

I am just kinda lost when it comes to tiling up to this corner.

Yep, Quadec can be used exactly as you’re proposing. I’ve used Rondec (rounded version of the same stuff) just like that. Makes for a nice edge.
It may be just the angle or temporary nature of the way you show it in the picture, but it looks to be even with the wall at the floor level and then shows an increasing space from the adjoining wall as you go up. If the wall or tile are not plumb it’s REALLY going to be noticeable in that application.
