tile cladding to ceiling height
Explanation:
The normal meaning of lambril (or lambrim) is a dado or wainscotting i.e. cladding of a wall up to a certain height (often waist height). In your case, it's obviously up to the ceiling (até altura do pé direito).

I'd say something like "full-height tile caldding" or "tile cladding to ceiling height".
