Default advice on type of railing to install?

I guess i can screw it right into the wall, seems to be enough 2x4's behind the wall, there or should i built it out with maybe 1x2" oak or even 2x6's but then the wall paper will be a problem.
I don't feel that confident aboutsomething like this. Maybe better to screw the wood railing right to the wall but then you couldn't get your hand around it.

Brass would be a nice idea too, again not confident it will last.

Your first option is very common and typically strong enough. I have seen it, installed it, and repaired it. Not highly decorative but serviceable.
