You could add detail to the end of the thicker corner trim (a bead or similar) rather than just round it off as you have in the photo. What would look good depends on the overall design.

I also agree with the idea of simply thinning out the corner trim. If you have a table saw, you could run it through to make it thinner. Or as mentioned use a hand plane.

I also agree with making the main trim thicker. By that I mean the trim that is vertical in your photos. Though I believe that is in fact the horizontal trim.

It is common to build up trim by layering simpler pieces on each other. Though don’t try to align the edges of pieces flush. I.E. don’t try to make the molding look thicker. That will show. Rather, step them one to the next. Make the new piece as thick or thicker than the corner trim and step it to the piece you already have.

Below is not an example of your situation, but it illustrates how you can build up molding from several pieces to create whatever you want.
