Painting dilemma

Ok, here goes. My living room and entry way are not separated by a doorway. I want to paint the living room but not the entryway. My problem is that I would stop painting when I get to the front door, which would make a good separation, except it doesn't go all the way to the ceiling, so where the door frame ends there would be no border for the paint, does that make sense? My question is what could I do to make it not look stupid where the paint just stops. I thought of maybe putting something above the door that would hide the seam, but just curious if anyone had any other ideas? Thanks in Advance!!

The front door would be the divider in the middle of the room, but there's just the 6 or 7 inches above the door that needs to be divided. I couldn't post a picture because it was too big and I couldn't figure out how to make it smaller. Thanks!

If the door is in the middle of the LR wall, I would paint the entire wall one color. If you want it different than the main LR color, just pick a slightly deeper shade and paint that one wall plus the other foyer wal(s) the same color.
